1st grade landscapes

The first graders and I discussed the art of German-born artist, Wolf Kahn.  You can check out his work here:
He mainly paints landscapes.  This was a great opportunity to talk about abstract art and all the important parts of a landscape.  The first graders divided their paper to show the foreground, middle ground and back ground areas.  They used cool or warm water colors to paint their sky / ground.  They even added the magic pinch of salt to create an interesting watercolor effect.  After taking off the tape, which we used as a mask for our trees, the students colored and painted the trees.  Spectacular artwork!
