We have been learning about nutrition and where food comes from in our class. I was inspired by folk art landscapes and the post from Painted Paper in creating this lesson.
Day One: The students drew their horizon. We added the barn, tree shapes and some students added a fence. They were then instructed to draw at least 5 vertical lines, dividing their landscapes. Next they drew a horizontal line in each section at varying heights, dividing each strip into two. Finally we used blue tempera blocks to paint the sky.
Day Two: The students again used tempera block paints to paint the different sections of their landscape as well as the tops of the trees.
Day Three: The students used markers to colour and outline their barns. They used oil pastels to add patterns to their land sections, fences, and for the tree stumps and branches.
I love how bright and colourful they turned out! The kids are so proud of them!
