Patterned Landscape

Ohh la la, I am liking these chalk pastels! Before this school year, I had never used them before. This fifth grade class used them on black paper to create an abstract landscape.  Students drew three hills with a building and then divided the hills into smaller sections onto which they could draw patterns.  I shared with students that line, shape and color are all elements or art.  With these simple concepts all types of art can be created… including a lovely abstract landscape.  The room was silent as students were drawing and coloring their artwork and their hard work paid off with these bright beautiful creations!
