Fun Fact for you all: I lovvvvvve architecture. It's my favorite thing to learn about in art history. Needless to say, I was in love with this project.
This is another one of Tasha's projects and probably my favorite one. She also taught most of this project too but it was too awesome not to share. We learned about Friedenreich Hundertwasser who is a super cool architect and painter. He has a very Seuss-esque style to his buildings. With this lesson, we talked about foreground, middle ground, background, and horizon line. The students drew their buildings in the foreground. Then added some details to them. Then they drew the fore, middle, and background. They added patterns and designs to the landscape. We painted using liquid watercolors. We then used fancy paper to create circular trees (making sure our trees got smaller as they went back into space). For the border/frame, we printed using black around the edges and then added some more circles that were similar to our trees.
