Kindergarten and First grade artists looked at a variety of painted landscapes. We talked about how a landscape painting is a picture of outside. It might have buildings in it, or it might just have nature. We also discussed foreground and background. Our background uses warm colors and features a sunset and was painted with tempera cakes. Our foreground is painted using scrap pieces of mat board dipped in black paint and printed in the shape of winter trees. Lastly, since it 'tis the season, we sponge painted white snow on the bottom of our paper and used old marker caps to print falling white snow.
