Students will create a piece of art using leaves.
- Fallen leaves
- Paints and brushes
- Scrapbook (optional)
- Paint one side of a leaf (vein side up) and then press it onto paper, imprinting the paper with the leaf design.
- Or, create leaf stencil art by laying a leaf down on a piece of paper and painting over the edge of it onto the paper, creating an outline.
- Another idea place paper over the top of a leaf and rub with a crayon. The ridges of the leaf will appear.
Press leaves between two heavy books. Leave them for two weeks. Make a collage or a book mark out of pressed leaves. Glue them onto notepaper to make notecards.
