Where are you Spring?

I don't know about you guys, but I am ready for some warm weather, bright colors and fresh air around here! I felt like my Pre- K and Kindergarteners agreed, so we created printed Cherry Blossom trees inspired by Japanese Sumi E painting.

We began by looking at some Sumi E paintings like this:

They we used recycled cardboard piece to dip and print tree limbs like this:

and then added wadded up tiny pieces of tissue to add the blossoms like this:

Finishing off with a "chop mark" cut from e-z cut linoleum to make our painting look as authentic as possible.

I'm hoping that warmed you up a little... only 28 days left of winter, but who's counting?
