Art created by students in Mrs. Bair’s and Mrs. Dennis’s third grade classes is now on display in the children’s room.
“This project began with an overview of various facts about Chinese landscape scroll paintings, paying particular attention to their overall relationship to nature.
Students were then asked to brainstorm and sketch as many different aspects of nature they were interested in and were shown how to paint the background of their scroll paper using a watercolor wash painting technique.
The next day students were able to paint their planned out foregrounds over top their background wash to show their interests and personal connection to nature.”
