The results are beautiful! I often say that the kindergarten pictures are prettier than the adults, but these teachers had wonderful time and created some very lovely works of art!
It took a bit of encouragement, but everyone jumped in and started painting. It was interesting to see how every painter interpreted the project just a little differently.
This artist made heavier branches than most, creating a very bold look to her painting.
Here are a few pictures as they are drying. It was fun to see different interpretations and it gave me a lot of ideas for my own art. This art project would be great for any age and would be a good inspiration piece for writing poetry. We will doing this project in our kindergarten classes about the first week of May. I try to do it when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom! I also have silk blossoms to show them and we study the picture "Almond Blossoms" by Van Gogh as inspiration for the bumpy branches!
After enjoying the warm weather in St. George and painting cherry blossoms, it was difficult to come back to the frigid weather of the Uintah Basin!
