It's snowing!!!

Steps:

You will need:

  • 12x12 grey construction paper
  • 12x9 black construction paper
  • white pencil
  • scissors
  • glue
  • white tempera paint, paint tray and/or a cup
  • sponge
  • old toothbrush or a paint splatter bottle

STEP 1:

Divide the black paper into 7 - 8 stripes.

These are going to be the tree trunks - they do not have to be perfectly straight.

STEP 2:

Group the trees into 3 piles:

  • thin stripes
  • medium stripes
  • thick stripes

Glue the thin stripes as shown (about 2-3 inches from the edge of the paper).

STEP 3:

Put some white paint in a tray.

 

Sponge some paint onto the bottom part of the artwork.

Cover a small part of the trees too.

Let the paint dry!

STEP 4:

Glue the medium thickness stripes between the thin trees edges and the edge of the paper.

STEP 5:

Sponge more paint covering the bottom part of the medium stripes.

Let the paint dry!

STEP 6:

Glue the rest of the stripes. Align the top and the bottom of each stripe with the paper edges.

STEP 7:

Sponge some paint onto the thick stripes.

 

STEP 8:

Use pieces of black construction paper to add tree branches.

 

STEP 9:

Cut off the tree tops.

 

STEP 10:

Pour white paint into a cup.

 

Place the artwork inside a box or cover the work area with newspapers.

 

Splatter paint onto the artwork.

Start at the bottom.

 

Let it dry.

 

Mat the finished work.
