Please Don't Eat the Artwork


Warm and Cool Landscapes

This project was a great kick-off to the school year for 2nd graders.


We began by reading this book:


The illustrations are pretty psychedelic and a great visual of landscapes and color schemes. Students used oil pastels to draw a landscape with warm or cool colors.


The next week, they used the opposite color scheme to paint with water colors.

The bright, bold colors really make a big impact in the hallway display!
