The berry sixth graders are creating landscapes that have depth. The students have been learning about how artists show depth in landscape paintings. Back in the fall they completed a one point perspective landscape with a barn. Several techniques were used to show depth including size difference, the height/placement of objects on the paper, atmospheric perspective and one point perspective.
This chalk landscape is the second in a series of landscape projects the sixth graders are doing this year. The students show their understanding of atmospheric perspective and include a background, middle ground and foreground in their own vibrant chalk landscapes. The next landscape project I have planned will be of silhouettes using more atmospheric perspective and overlapping.
Please leave a comment and tell me if you have a good landscape art project! I would love to hear about it!
