During this art lesson, students examine how atmospheric perspective changes the colors of mountains as they move back into space. Using this as inspiration, students experiment with watercolor paints by mixing colors, texturing, creating a resist, as well as special effects with salt. The final work of art is a beautiful mountain scene at night.
I taught this project to my 2nd & 3rd grade classes and they loved the process, as well as the final result!
