This fourth grade class did an awesome job creating a landscape image with only torn paper! We first looked at pictures of landscapes with the ocean, fields, and mountains. Then starting with the sky, students tore and Modge Podged little pieces of various blues onto their piece of cardboard. Once the sky took shape, we layered on the mountains, then grass, followed by water to complete the landscape.
To emphasize perspective and space as an element of art, students used a lighter color behind the darker value. As you can see the mountains have a layer of light brown, followed by a darker brown.
