Keeping Barns in Perspective
Tomash, Lisa
Arts & Activities, v147 n2 p18-19 Mar 2010
In this article, the author describes a landscape project using Grant Wood's paintings as an example. As part of the project, the students are required to include a barn in their picture. This project is a great opportunity to study an Iowa artist who did landscape painting and to study perspective. This is also an excellent project for teaching about texture. The students learn that by using different strokes to show the textures, they can show the roughness of barn boards, as well as showing the softness of blowing grass. (Contains 6 resources.)
