Looking for the perfect winter art project? Well then I've got y'all covered. This Northern Lights Winter Landscape is not only visually stunning but students of all ages and artistic abilities will create a gorgeous work of art that is sure to be a show stopper!  Your students will learn all about the gorgeous natural phenomenon that is the aurora borealis, and use super fun, engaging and (dare I say MINDBLOWING ) techniques to create their winter landscape. This is also the perfect lesson to connect to science!

Here is what some buyers have said about this resource:

THIS IS THE BEST ART RESOURCE. I love this because it doesn't require students to have elaborate art skills. Everyone creates a great landscape despite their skills. The instructions were super thorough and also included an intro video which was lovely!! - Cindy C.

My students really enjoyed this activity. Each step was broken down in a way that allowed students to clearly understand each one. I used this activity during Science class while teaching an Outer Space unit. The activity allowed students who didn't consider themselves "artistic" to produce beautiful pieces of art! They were all so well done, we displayed them in the hallways! - Lynette
