LANDSCAPE Paintings -
Students in art class have been learning all about landscapes. There are 3 areas to a landscape. Does your child remember all 3? Why are objects in the foreground the biggest? They had to think about what to put in each area of their landscape drawing before we painted. I hope you enjoy their latest creation!
