Chalk Art: April

April is the season of Sakura!  Sakura, also known as Japanese Cherry Blossoms, are the most beautiful trees that ever existed.  Sakura season means hanami (picnics under a cherry tree), late evenings, gorgeous colors, and a reflection on the natural transience of life.  I love this season and I love these trees so I decided to bring their beauty into the classroom.  I used a simple two-color scheme (white and pink).  The trees frame the board in rough, linear sketches.  Then I added flowers and petals everywhere!  I didn’t focus on an exact shape and I blended the colors together to give the flowers a little more depth.  The board is actually green, which I think was a nice background color for this piece.  Finally, I added “APRIL” in easy to write letters.  Voila!  The beauty of Sakura stayed with us from April to June!

Sakura everywhere!
