Oil Pastel Landscapes-- 2nd grade


Oil Pastel Landscapes
By the Upper Primaries

This project focused on learning about foreground, middle ground, background, shadows, and color mixing.  The students learned simple depth techniques.  The Upper Primaries used oil pastels to draw a tropical landscape.  They learned how to mix and blend oil pastels to create rich colors.  Paul Gauguin was studied and in particular, the students explored his painting Tahitian Landscape.
