Winter Shadows

Even though Winter may be officially behind us, the wintery weather still lingers. The day we did this art lesson there was a layer of the white stuff on the ground! The students were very engaged in a multi-step art lesson involving several different layers.

Students chose whether they wanted their background to have warm colours or cool colours and selected tissue paper based on that.

Some other materials that were used included:

  • watered-down white glue
  • tissue paper
  • watercolour (black)
  • watercolour paper

Vocabulary learned included:

  • background/foreground
  • intensity
  • shadow
  • horizon line
  • warm colours/cool colours

Check out the process and a few examples of the finished product. What a beautiful job!
