5th Grade Colorful Landscapes

Another spin from a Pinterest link, finding lots of good stuff over there! I think I've tried new projects with every class this far from Pinterest. This was a project about fore, mid and backgrounds, balance in the composition, and of course we worked around the color wheel. We did a step X step drawing first, the students could add a little of their own flair to the picture, sharpie step, and then they used lines to follow the shapes for a little more visual interest and last we painted with liquid water color. The results are super! I just sent some to our local Culver's Restaurant where they display our schools work every month.
 Does your school do any type of public display on a regular basis?


  1. Using the color wheel from front to back is a really nice touch. These are wonderful! :)

    1. Thanks! The kids really enjoyed it and we hit a lot of objectives on this one!
