Winter landscapes


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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.

Snowflakes

The Wednesday afternoon art class has been busy creating snowflakes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The process of creating snowflakes begins with basic paper folding.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Creating snowflakes are based on the art of Kirigami  which is a variation of origami that includes cutting of the paper.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES Kirigami are usually symmetrical, such as snowflakes, pentagrams, or orchid blossoms.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone enjoyed creating four-pointed snowflakes.

The final step was to add a bit of glitter to the snowflakes for some sparkle!
