Winter Landscapes

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.
