continue to become shorter and shorter.
This art project's purpose is to use the oil pastels I had introduced to the students in the last class. The art will represent not only fall but the four seasons of the year.
I drew out the concept of the whole project on the white board so the students would have an idea of what was expected and what the finished product would look like. Then I handed each student the card stock on which they would draw this picture. Following this I now walked through each aspect of the picture with them. We began with pencil drawing out the three lines outlining what would be the areas for each of the four seasons. Then I illustrated how they would draw the tree. Once they were happy with the that, they could draw out the three lines and the tree with black ink markers. Once that was done they could erase their pencil lines and begin to fill in the tree with the markers, as you see in the photo above.
Several of the students finished their trees and began filling in one or two of the four season areas of the drawing.
Summer passes and one remembers one's exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one's perseverance.”
