Karla Gerard Inspired Patterned Landscapes

This is a new third-grade lesson to develop patterns of line and shape in landscapes. I discovered this lesson on Cassie Stephens art teacher blog. She's amazing and very generous with sharing her lessons. I made a few adjustments to the lesson for our kiddos and I'm thrilled with the work created by our third-grade artists. We found using various colored sharpies to create the landscape patterns worked better in creating more detailed patterns. The kids used tempera cakes as a watercolor wash and fabric puffy paint did the trick for outlining the 3-dimensional buildings. I am thrilled with the process and final outcome of their work.
