Activity: Create an autumn landscape inspired by Canada's Group of Seven.
Directive: Using these two paintings as inspiration, we're going to create our own Canadian autumn landscape. However, we're going to try to incorporate a couple other fun techniques into our creations:
- Blow-art trees – but some dabs of paint where you want your leaves to go. Using a straw, blow the paint around to create a splatter effect. Paint in the tree trunk after.
- Hand-print pointillism trees – trace your hand and arm onto the paper. Your arm is the trunk of the tree and your fingers are the branches. Using a small paintbrush, add small dabs (pointillism) of paint to the branches to create leaves.
Artistic methods explored: Foreground, midground, background, Mixed-media, Pointillism, Blow-art.
