Our 3rd Grade artists took an in depth journey into color for these rich looking landscapes.
First students looked at the color wheel and studied complementary colors- they then selected a complimentary set.
Students then demonstrated their understanding of value creating tints and shades with paint of their chosen colors.
They selected one of their painted papers for their background and used the other to create their trees. Students placed trees in the foreground, middleground and background of their artwork to create a sense of space. Metallic oil pastel was added to add interest and detail.
Here are just a few examples!
