2nd Grade Warm and Cool Color Landscapes

In this project 2nd graders learned about art made about different places.  They learned the difference between a seascape (oceans), cityscape (cities) and landscape (mountains, hills, fields).  They also learned the difference between realistic art (art that shows how the subject actually looks looks in real life) and abstract art (art that shows the subject looking different then what it would in real life).  They determined that this project was an Abstract Landscape.  Students created hills in the foreground, mountains in the middle ground and either suns or moons in the background.  Students then colored their landscapes using warm and cool color patterns.  They learned about the Cool Colors: Blues, Greens and Violets and the Warm Colors: Reds, Oranges and Yellows.   They then added white to the tops of the mountains.  When finished they traced between each color with black oil pastels to make the colors stand out. Great Job 2nd graders‼‼
