First Friday Art Class November 2014 - Fall Leaves
We took a little bit longer break than usual this year and are just now starting up our First Friday classes (this month on the second Friday). But we are back in session and ready to go.
Our theme today was FALL LEAVES. All of our projects had to do with leaves and trees and Fall.
I always like to start out with the simplest project and then move onto the more complicated. These Cut Out Leaves are very simple and fun to make. It's like cutting out snowflakes, only much simpler because you only have one fold. I first saw them HERE on the Choi to the World blog and I knew it would be a perfect first project for our November class.
The girls got right down to business and each made several leaves. We had 7 girls today and there were moments where they were all concentrating so much, there were actual moments of silence. Crazy! :)
Puzzle Trees. (Inspiration for this project came from HERE and HERE). This is where we get a little more complicated. This project has a huge wow factor as you're doing it and the finished product. Win-win!
Here are the step by step instructions and my sample is at the top of this post:
Here are the sweet, beautiful girls with their finished, beautiful trees:
