Art Projects for September:

Draw a Crane:  This is in interdisciplinary lesson which is designed to enforce the impact of the first reading assignment.  Students study photos of a crane.  They draw their crane onto white paper and color it using watercolor paints.  They remember to use the art technique called Realism, to create their drawing.

A Landscape Composition, colored two ways:  This project is a study of landscape drawing, using the perspective technique and the effect of color in a composition.  Students draw a landscape that includes several trees.  They remember to draw using perspective, a horizon line and foreground and background size rules.  They divide their drawing and color one side in cool summer colors and one side in warm fall colors.  They use mixed media, colored chalk and colored pencils to blend their colors.
