Third grade learned about tricks artists used to show space, or near and far, in a landscape. They viewed a power point that showed how overlapping, size and placement on the page can show near and far. They learned the parts of a landscape: foreground, middle ground and background. Next they painted a simple hilly landscape on a paper plate. Next week we will add flowers, sheep, barns, sunsets or rainbows. We will eventually weave a tree on this plate. Come back and see where we are at on this project each week. Thanks to Cassie Stephens for this inspiration.
