Winter landscapes

The Wednesday afternoon art classes created mixed-medium landscapes this week.

We began with creating a horizon line and using watercolors for our sky.

The next step was cutting out trees with scissors and construction paper.

This required a lot of focus as the scissors became a tool for drawing the trees through the cutting process.

Next was gluing the trees to the landscape.

The final step was to add shadow to the trees with watercolor paint.

Everyone enjoyed learning to mix mediums to create a wonderful winter landscape.

Everyone in the class is on their own personal artistic journey.

It’s fun to walk this journey with others instead of being alone.

It’s been a real joy to watch the creative journeys that the class members have undertaken these past few weeks.

In the words of Edward Hopper, “If you could say it in words there would be no reason to paint”, this class has begun to learn the language of paint.  I’m looking forward to our last class to see the resolution of their paintings.
