The 5th Grade students reviewed what a landscape is and the four parts: foreground, middle ground, background, and horizon line. We talked about the texture on birch trees and students used masking tape to create that texture on their trees. We also reviewed the cool colors and discussed different feelings and things that remind them of the cool colors. Students were able to use a wet on wet watercolor technique to blend their cool colors for their sky. Finally students used sharpies to create the final texture for their birch trees.
