Landscapes

Landscapes

As I was thinking about what to do for Art to Remember this year I somehow ended up coming back to mountains…this project was so fun to teach because I have a deep love for our beautiful mountains.  The students worked through a guided drawing with me for these landscapes, but were able to add in their own details as they chose to. We discussed color mixing with oil pastel using either analogous colors, or value.  The students were also shown how to mix colors in their mountains to help make them stand out from each other, creating contrast through shading.  I love how peaceful these feel.

Annual Teacher Experience – Canvas Painting 2019

Each year I have donated a Canvas Painting Experience for our fundraising auction.  I have a small group of kids (8 in each section this year) join me after school to learn how to use acrylics on canvas. I LOVE painting with acrylics, so this is always a fun event for me.  This year’s artwork turned out beautiful!
