2nd grade pastel landscapes

The second graders are working on an abstract landscape using chalk pastels.  We looked at the artwork of Ted Harrison, the famous English and Canadian painter.  He uses very bright colors.  We discussed his artwork and the three parts of a landscape.  Here's a funny video about Ted Harrison's art.  I like how it emphasizes the creative licence he took to create colors in the sky.

Check out these great student works.  They are really coming along.
