Here’s an idea for mixing art history with the season, filling in a leaf drawing with Kandinsky-style circles.
- Draw a maple leaf on drawing paper, using my tutorial link above. I believe the tutorial is good for 3rd graders on up, but would recommend a tracer template for kinder through 2nd grade. Curves are some of the hardest things for young artists to see, and this leave is really nothing but curves.
- The leaf is traced with a Sharpie marker.
- The leaf is colored in with lots of gradating circles, in the style of Kandinsky.
