3rd Grade Landscape Painting
3rd grade artists learned how to mix tints and shades to create a value scale ranging from white, light gray, medium gray, dark gray and black. We looked at Chinese brush painting and studied how these artists created depth in their paintings. They used atmospheric perspective--making things lighter to make them appear farther away. These artists also placed farther away objects higher up on their paper. We borrowed these ancient techniques and created these wintery landscapes.
