With all the vibrant Fall colors around us, Adrian expressed a wish to paint an Autumn tree. To prepare, we read books about Trees, talked about their composition, and looked at different types of trees.
We read Woods and Forests book, and I explained that the trunk has to be thicker on the bottom and thinner towards the top, and that the branches have to face sideways-up, towards the sun.
Adrian had fun expressing his artistic side while using vibrant Autumn colors. He learned quickly how to press the paintbrush flash against the paper to have a "leaf-like" effect, and he enjoyed implementing the newly learned techniques himself.
