Here's hoping for warmer weather! 5th grade is working on these beautiful cherry blossom trees. We studied cherry blossoms and trees on the activboard and then discussed blending and "not" mixing the paint for their blossoms. We used pink, red, and lots of white to create the flowers. I encouraged them to dip a corner of the brush in pink and the other corner in red. Dab the blossom onto a branch, then dab white on top of that. They have all turned out so beautiful!
