"Autumn Twilight"

"Fall into Autumn" with this watercolor art project!  

(Pictures are worth more than words today!)



























   
The kids were so excited to see our exhibit in the hallway!



Materials used for this project:  Day 1-Use black sharpies to create the curly tree branches on white card stock.   
  


Day 2--Brush on fallish watercolors using one of the following patterns- stripes, patchwork, fog effect



Inspired by Pinterest and some fantastic GOOGLE IMAGES-


This was one of the EASIEST projects I've ever done with my little artists!  Definitely a keeper for next year!  If you would like a copy of the "Autumn Twilight" headers, click HERE.  


Have a great weekend!
