Christmas trees collage

By Silke, 10 years old
I found this idea on Artsonia a collage of Christmas trees coloured with different materials on music paper. You need:
  1. white drawing paper A4 size
  2. different colouring materials, like crayons, oilpastel, watercolour paint, tempera, colour pencils, markers, aquarelle pencils etc.
  3. music paper
  4. chalk pastel
  5. green paper for background
  6. scissors
  7. glue
  8. black marker
Divide different colour materials in your classroom. One place with paint (water paint and tempera paint), one place with crayons and oil pastel, one place with pencils and markers. Children draw three overlapping triangles on a white sheet, the Christmas trees. These trees have to be coloured with different materials and patterns. The only colour they may use is green, in all its nuances. To colour, children have to take place at the table where the material of their choice is. When finished, the trees and patterns have to be outlined with a black marker. The trees (with the black outline) must be cut out. Then kids have to tear pieces of music paper and paste them on a new white sheet. Colour the background with light blue chalk pastel. Do not colour the music paper, just rub the edges with the chalk pastel. Paste the trees on the blue sheet and paste this work on a green background.

This work can also be done as a group work. All trees (or groups of trees) have to be glued then on a large background of music paper.

  1. When do you find the time to do so much work? I only see my students once a week for 40 minutes. The trees are beautiful.

  2. Thank you!
    I have one hour a week for drawing lessons and I only have two classes, but mostly my students may choose from different subjects. Last Friday we took two hours, two classes together and four different lessons to choose from.
    And - not everything on my blog is new. Some lessons were done years ago!

  3. I just discovered your blog yesterday, through someone else's blogroll. You have such beautiful projects here! I tried out the Christmas Tree Collage yesterday with two of my children.
    Thank you for a lovely project!
