Art News from Ms. Champagne for December 2019


In art at MSKC, we are creating landscape drawings. We learned that a landscape is a work of art that includes all things found on land. Landscapes can include areas such as cities, towns, neighborhoods, deserts and mountains. We learned that a landscape that includes the ocean, lighthouses, and land around it is called a seascape. Students created their own landscapes by drawing a bridge in the middle of their paper and designing under, over, and on top of the bridge. Students created bridges for cars and trucks as well as boardwalks and walking bridges. Landscapes included everything that we see in our cities and towns around us, both in nighttime and daytime skies. We learned that the line where the sky meets the ground is called a horizon line.
