“Learning is a Journey” – Visual Metaphors

So to spruce up the blog a little bit we need to make, or find, a series of images that represent the phrase “Learning is a Journey”.  I decided to create a couple images using the same techniques I used in a Grade 5 class yesterday.  Basically you create a simple outline of an image, then colour it in with crayons, then crumple up the paper.  The kids love it because of the curmpling, and it produces a great textured effect once you paint over it with water colours!  Here is my finished example of a maple leaf that we made in class:
