Landscape SeriesStudents are introduced to landscapes by viewing the work of a variety of landscape painters. We also look at the work of Picasso's Blue Period and Monet's Cathedral at Rouen to understand the concept of working in a series. Students draw from a photo of a landscape on an 8" x 8" paper. This sometimes requires that they make artistic decisions about placement of elements in the landscape. The first work in the series is painted using tempera paint and primary colors plus black and white. Color mixing and color theory are the emphasis. The second in the series is a monochromatic version using watercolor and the third in the series is a collage using a wide variety of materials.
