-I can look at art in different ways and cooperatively share my interpretations with my classmates.
-I can distinguish between background, middleground and foreground of a composition.
-I can understand how artworks can illustrate the relationship between people and the environment.
-I can apply my understanding of artistic techniques and to create the illusion of space within a painting.

Looking and responding with critical thinking to the plethora of landscape paintings from the NBMAA’s permanent collection, students will discover and analyze a variety of techniques that artists use to create the illusion of space. Students will discuss and analyze the relationship of people and the environment over time, using the paintings as their primary source documents. Students will then apply those methods to create a landscape drawing utilizing important elements of design to structure their composition, and add watercolor to explore texture, depth, and mark making skills. An optional message can be written on the back of the student’s postcard-sized landscape paintings using descriptive writing full of sensory details about the landscape depicted.
Maximum 125 students per visit

Parents and teachers are invited and encouraged to participate as chaperones during school visits! We require at least one chaperone per 10 students, but more are always appreciated and welcomed!
