I really enjoy delivering Autumn art lessons. It’s a good idea to get students to respond to the world around them and a great excuse for observational drawing and colour mixing. The resources below encourage both of these skills.
What makes the autumn art lesson below so useful is the good example of painted leaves that is included. Some of the leaves are painted using just ‘wet on wet’ and two have had ‘wet on dry’ applied over the top. What a great excuse to introduce your students to these ways of working.
The ‘Autumn Maple Leaves’ art lesson below was made in response to a request from a fellow art teacher. Students work wet on wet and the ‘good example’ that is included lets students know exactly what you want them to achieve.
The autumn leaves art lesson below is great for improving your student’s observational drawing skills. These leaves contain so much detail that they will stretch your most able students whilst the grid supports lower ability students.
The resource below is designed to focus on practising watercolour skills. As a faint image of the leaf is already in place, students don’t need to draw, but just focus on painting instead. It’s a great way to build confidence.
You have the choice with the autumn art lesson below, to ask your students to draw with pencil, coloured pencils or watercolour. It’s a versatile resource with inspiring, high-resolution images. Students can use the edge of the box to help them create an accurate drawing.
You will be able to create a variety of autumn art lessons with the download below. The download gives students a wide choice or images to draw and paint, and of course, they can add these images to their sketchbook pages too.
