First we sketched realistic gum trees on thick white cover paper.
On another pie of cover paper we created a series of layers for the background using a variety of media. ( I used different paper as well as wax crayons and oil pastels.
The tree was cut out and attached to the background using tabs made from polystyrene which is glued onto the tree and background to give it a 3D look.
The grade 6 kids also started work on their Australian megafauna PowerPoint.
