During this Christmas season I was able to do a great art lesson with the students. We made Tissue Paper Stain Glass Windows. They enjoyed the challenge and I think you will love the results. I have placed my presentation with a step-by-step instruction to create these stain glass windows for you to see and a few examples of the students work. Enjoy!!!
How to create a Tissue Paper Stain Glass Window Presentation

Within my practicum I did a lesson plan in Art, instructing the student in 3 dimensional shapes, using shading and smudging to get the effect. The lesson was to create pumpkins in a patch with the illusion of a bright spot to create depth and a light source. We used pastels to get the right look for the activity.
First we drew the outline of the pumpkin shapes with red pastels and coloured a thin amount of red on the inside to the outline. Then they coloured orange on the inside leaving a small spot where they coloured it yellow. They had to really press hard to get the right colour and it helps with the next stage, smudging. They took some toilet paper and in a circular motion smudged the red, orange and yellow to get the look of depth and a highlight on the pumpkin surface. After the smudging they would take a green pastel and create a stem and contour lines to make the pumpkin more realistic. They would then add vines, sky and the surrounding field with shadows.
The results were amazing.
