Artists in 3rd grade learned all about the artist Grant Wood. Grant Wood was a famous artist in the style of Regionalism, which is art about a certain area or region. Wood grew up in Iowa and liked to paint and draw things he saw in the small rural community where he lived. He is famous for his farm landscape paintings and the painting “American Gothic”. Like Wood, 3rd graders showed distance in their artwork by making sure to have a background, middle ground and foreground. They made sure things that were close were big and things that were farther away were smaller. They worked on adding lots of details to make interesting farmscapes!
Great Job 3rd Graders!!!!
