These pieces by my 1st and 2nd graders were created with a tempera sponge brushed sky, painted trees and oil pastel Van Gogh inspired details. The last touch was a snow storm effect using a flicked paint brush of watered down white tempera, charcoal cast tree shadows and of course the option of an added snowman. We may have a forecast of 75* for Christmas day, but these pieces have me in the holiday spirit. :)
