Tom Thomson – Leaf Prints

 “Take everything as it comes; the wave passes, deal with the next one.” 

       –Tom Thomson

We kicked off our Canadian artist fall session  with the great Tom Thomson.  The students enjoyed hearing about his love of Algonquin Park and his dedication to painting the vast wild forests and rugged terrain that make up so much of our Canadian experience.

For our art project we used maple and oak leaves to make our leaf prints, they really pop on the black background. The students then used a sponge with yellow, orange and red paint to fill in the background and give it a fall feeling. You can almost smell the forest in the air…
