Please Don't Eat the Artwork


3rd Grade Landscapes

1 Comment

What makes something a landscape? How can you show foreground, middle ground, and background in a landscape? How can an artist use expressive lines in their artwork? How can artists use warm and cool color schemes? 3rd graders explored these questions by making color scheme landscapes using pencils, sharpies, and colored pencils.

We talked about landscapes and cool and warm colors. Then students designed their own landscapes using their imaginations. We talked about overlapping and how objects are smaller if they are far away. This project was more successful as a process than a product. The kids got really creative and included dinosaurs, roller coasters, wormholes, volcanoes, sky scrapers, and even make believe creatures!
