Autumn leaves - drawings, papercuts, crayon rubbings - children's art class 10/02/18

A pouring rainy late afternoon, and there were still not that many colorful leaves about. We drew and colored from a reference page of leaf models - maple, oak, and birch. We cut freehand leaves and then made crayon rubbings with them. To draw the leaves we start with the vein structure. It is like a skeleton. From there we draw the contour outline of the leaf. However it turns out will be beautiful.

I wish I could remember all the leaf jokes and puns I heard last year. Things like you leave me pining for you. We maple that tree down next year. Of course these oaks are not as funny as those I heard last year. Hard to come up with them at the drop of a hat and it can be a bit like finding a needle in a haystack. Yep, it can be a birch.
