2nd Grade Winter Landscapes
For this project, we read a book about Grandma Moses:Grandma Moses (Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists)
We discussed how to draw a river or road showing depth (by drawing it converging to a point in the distance). We talked about using size variation to show distance while drawing houses and other objects.
The students cut out mountains from gray paper and a snowy patch from white paper (I walked them through this step-by-step). Houses were cut from construction paper and details were added with crayons. Trees and snow were painted with watercolor cakes.
