North Carolina Landscapes

North Carolina Landscapes

These beautiful landscapes were inspired by the lesson over at Apex Elementary Art. We switched it up a little to incorporate all three regions of North Carolina – the mountains, Piedmont, and the coastal plains. NC history is the focal point in 4th grade social studies so this is one of those perfectly aligned cross-curricular projects.
We sketched everything out with pencil first and then traced with a black crayon. Next week we will start painting with those nice translucent tempera paints.
I can’t wait to see their final products. I’ll update again when we are finished!

I want to share every single one of these! They all look great. I am so proud of how well they are painting and experimenting a little with color and design.

UPDATE!
These gorgeous paintings are finished and hanging in the foyer of the school. They really pop against that brick wall!
