Kandinsky Fall Tree Tutorial

I revised this popular project for fall, and added a few visual tips on how to make a circular Kandinsky style leaf. My goal is to have the students make as much variation as possible with them – some thin, thick, large, small and so on.

1. A green grass shape is cut and glued to a blue background.

2. A tree outline is cut from black paper and glued down.

3. Leaves are made by cutting and gluing circles to larger pieces of paper, and trimming as shown.

4. Add circles to tree, both attached to the branches or not. This is an abstract tree after all so have fun!

    I love this, but the tree shape seems difficult for 1st and 2nd graders. Any suggestions?

We use warm colors to represent the fall leaves.  This project could also be repeated using different color schemes to represent different seasons. Here is a step by step tutorial for these fall trees.
