Landscapes inDEPTH

Chalk Landscapes

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!
