Asian Scrolls with a Twist
Japanese and Asian Landscapes
This lesson, students learned that images that are closer can overlap images that are further away. As a class, we brainstormed images that were inspired by asian landscapes. Students were experts as they did a passport to Asia activity last year with their classroom teachers. A rule that students had to follow was one image had to show overlapping and one images had to show dark to light towards the horizon line. Students planned out there images on rough copy paper before transferring their images onto the good copy paper.
We used watercolour pencils. Some students chose to use soft pastels for their background.
They look pretty impressive hung up in the art room and just in time for Asian Week at our school.
