DA#15 – Like a Tree

What if I change like a tree?

In this atelier children experience how trees are all different and how they change according to the seasons. Then they discover that they too, like trees, are all different, even though they have many things in common. Each child follows a tree near home and observes it changing over the course of the seasons, the photos of the trees are transformed into silhouettes to be decorated as desired. A main colour palette will be extracted and used by the children to create beautiful self-portraits, where the colours of the trees become the colours of their face, creating a deep connection between the child and the tree.
