There is a book by Lois Ehelert called, “Leaf Man” and is written for young children. However, the pictures in the book can be made by everyone of all ages and is a great art project for the fall. You will not need any art supplies, just leaves and sticks that you can find in your yard!
Students understand that art can be created using nature and elements other than traditional art supplies.
Students arrange natural elements into the shape of a human or animal.
Natural elements found outside such as,
leaves, pine cones, acorns, sticks, rocks, etc...
