What a wonderful way to welcome spring...To talk a little bit about the Cherry Blossom tree; and introduce a fun way to create our own artistic version of this magnificent tree! After sharing a few fun facts, including; "Japanese love cherry blossoms so much, they've turned them into an ice cream flavor." Ha ha...My friends loved that one!
For our art project, my friends used a selection of chalk pastels, their choice of colors, to blend onto their paper as a backdrop.
Next, teachers dropped black ink onto the colors of each child's picture. Children then had the option of using a straw or blowing their own breath onto the ink, causing the ink to disperse in a variety of directions.
Once the ink dried, children applied little paint dots using shades of pink and white and a Q-tip to create the little blossoms.
Last step, as an option, soft silver glitter sprinkling down...So magical!
Have a beautiful week! Happy Spring!
