In this easy-to-follow, detailed lesson we learn about deserts and cactus plants (specifically saguaro cacti), while creating beautiful desert landscapes. Students will learn about perspective and texture in regards to art. This lesson helps develop fine motor skills as we create these pieces on a smaller scale to really focus on details.
Key Art Concepts: Texture, Perspective, Landscapes
Key Nature Topics: Deserts, Cactus
This lesson is part of our Art & Nature curriculum series that combines art with science. Every Art & Nature is lesson is complete with an overview on the nature topic we are exploring, step-by-step written art instructions with accompanying photos, and critical thinking questions to guide your students in learning beyond the art lesson itself. This lesson can also be taught on its own without the nature element if desired.
