3rd Grade: Ted Harrison Landscape with Chalk Pastels

This is a beautiful project! First we studied Ted Harrison, Canadian artist....looked at his work...created a landscape using repeating lines, outlined our drawing in glue on black paper....added color with chalk. Easy and fun!

    1. We do intro/sketch/drawing and tracing with glue in one 60 minute class....then the next 60 minute class I get them to choose sky or ground (warm or cool) to prevent "muddiness"...then the last 60 minutes class for the other half...this is a hard one to control on how fast the kids work...some get done REALLY early..then others barely finish!
