It’s Rodeo Art Time (3rd)

Third graders worked on a cactus in a sunset landscape for their Rodeo Art project.

First they were taught how to gradate the green paint so that it was not just one solid color but gradually went from dark to light.

Then they tore pieces of red, yellow, and orange tissue paper to start building their sunsets.

Lastly, they drew, cut out, and glue on their cactus’ and placed the final touch of a setting sun.
