The third grade has been learning about the three types of subject matter: landscape, still life, and portrait. They learned that landscapes have a foreground, middleground, and background. They learned that objects appear smaller when they are further away. We created an imaginatively colored landscape based on David Hockney’s Mulholland Drive.
The third grade has learned that a still life shows objects that do not move. They learned that objects overlap to create distance and shadows can help show where light is showing. The third grade learned how to draw from observation.
