Flowing with Rivers
School Arts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v104 n1 p39 Sep 2004
This article describes a lesson in which students compare how artists have depicted rivers in paintings, using different styles, compositions, subject matter, colors, and techniques. They create a watercolor landscape that includes a river. Students can learn about rivers by studying them on site, through environmental study, and through works of art created by artists who have represented them throughout time. Knowledge can be shared by making art about river environments and by becoming aware of and working to protect these natural resources.
