Klimt Printmaking 2nd grade

Well, I have lost my camera, so no posts for a while, but I have some new things to share with a borrowed camera. These are second grade, I gave them 3 5x7 inch pieces of watercolor paper, and let them color the paper with Crayola markers. We chose colors that touched on the color wheel, to avoid making brown. Students used water and a paint brush to mix the colors, then we practice drawing the Tree of Life, from Klimt. Students used the foam blocks (4x6in) from DickBlick. We used pencils to draw the design, then we printed our trees on our watercolor paper. Straight out of Arts and Activities magazine, but very nice.
