I found this neat idea on Pinterest, of course, where I tend to find a lot of inspiration! We painted our background during the first class. Next we created patterns in our landscape, flipped our papers over and drew a tree on the back. I encouraged them to keep their trees SIMPLE! 3 to 4 branches total. After cutting the trees out, we put the puzzle back together and glued them down onto black paper so that the negative space now becomes the tree. They are so unique!
