What is a Landscape?

Students in several First Grade classes have been learning about landscapes. After discussing how artists make art of outside scenes, we made our own! The kids were creating these gorgeous works of art with tissue paper and adhesives. This method is called Tissue Paper Painting and can have a beautiful affect. They first made the ground and sky with a clear horizon line. Next, they used browns, oranges, reds and yellows to create Fall trees. Some students also chose to put suns in their lovely blue skies. These paintings have a beautiful abstract quality that I just love! These will be going in the hall very soon for the rest of the school to enjoy.
