My example on light paper
My example on black paper
I know! My students were quick to point out that it wasn't October. But I have been doing quite a bit of animal themed projects lately and I was inspired by this wonderful One Point Perspective Lesson from SmART Class and this lesson by Shine Brite Zamorano inspired by this artwork . My students chose between black or light colored construction paper to set their mood. I used Natalie's incredibly helpful guidelines to help the children set up their landscape. Chalk pastel was used to set the atmosphere for sky, ground, roads, and shadows. Oil pastel was used for the trees. The trickiest part for the kids seemed to be making those first trees in the foreground Large and working down from there.It is a bit advance for younger children, but they did a great job! These were created by children 6-9. More to post!
