Landscape of a Virginia Region


I love this project. Fourth graders paint a landscape of one of the Virginia Regions. We use tempera paint cakes first to paint the sky, ground, land forms, rivers etc. We talk about using tints and shades for different values of colors. We review background, middle ground, and foreground. We add details with oil pastels the next week.

Your name is familiar. Either you teach in my county or I have heard of you through VAEA. (See you in a few weeks?) Love the painting. I'm getting ready to do a similar one in a couple of weeks. jan (Fairfax)

Nice blog. Images of this blog is very nice. This is a great activity for students that finish work early instead of just a free draw.
