PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This geography related art lesson focuses on shape, color, and negative space. The use and consideration of negative space as a design element is embedded in the activity.

The lesson includes a read aloud of Woody Guthrie’s This Land is Your Land, followed by a discussion of landscape elements.

This is a simple lesson that requires very little preparation or planning. The inherent nature of the simplified collage assures that all students can be successful in creating interesting, stylized landscape collages.

Torn Paper Collage Landscape includes the following:

- a list of art concepts and skills addressed
- a list of materials needed
- targeted art and related vocabulary
- detailed steps for introducing the lesson
- suggested related read-aloud book
- directions for art-making
- ideas for extending or varying the lesson
- ideas for looking at and discussing student art
- suggestions for writing extensions
- photographs of student art work for reference

Also included:
What is a Landscape? a teacher resource which shows examples of various styles of landscape art
My Art Observation - an art reflection student worksheet

This comprehensive art lesson is designed to teach art appreciation, artist behavior, and art analysis.

Because I teach in California, this lesson also includes a list of the California Visual Arts Standards addressed for suggested grade levels. Please note that listed grade levels are suggestions only; any of these lessons can be simplified or made more complex to work for any elementary grade.

I am a retired elementary classroom teacher, a former art teacher, an artist and a writer. I have worked with all elementary grades, and with special groups including ELL, GATE, and At-Risk students. Creating Art With Kids and Share2Learn lessons and resources are designed to foster student creativity, choice, and independence, and to encourage authentic art-making. Consideration is given to developmental appropriateness, differentiation possibilities, and teacher individuality. For this reason, directions are general, expectations are open-ended, and clip art on student pages is kept to a minimum.

Visit my blog, Creating Art With Kids, for detailed descriptions and helpful tips about the teaching process for many of my art lessons.
