2/3 Art – Warm & Cool Pastel Landscapes – October 2014

2/3 Art students learned about the basics of perspective and landscape, using warm and cool colors, and drawing with tools other than pencil in this lesson.

They reviewed warm and cool colors and discussed basics of perspective (how two objects of a similar size can look either larger or smaller depending on how close up or far away they are viewed). They also reviewed how in a landscape drawing or painting, the earth and sky appear to touch each other at the horizon line. They were then shown a demonstration on how glue bottles can be used as a drawing tool. This created the outlines for their landscapes, which they colored in with warm and cool oil pastels. Students chose whether to make the sky in warm colors and the ground in cool colors, or the sky in cool colors and the ground in warm colors. The results were both colorful and well designed!
