Desert Landscapes

For our landscape lesson this year in third grade, I wanted to do a desert similar to one I had done many moons ago.  However, I couldn't find my sample so I looked online and was blown away by the very cool way to use chalk pastel seen here in a blog post by Cassie Stephens.  I also loved learning about a new (to me) artist, Sushe Felix (for more information, click here).  As a class, we compared her work to the Georgia artist Marsha Hamby Savage.  They both create wonderful desert landscapes but in different styles.
The students and and I had a fun time using the new stencil-method.  Here are their great works:
