Students learned about Austrian Artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. They used his harmonious landscapes as inspiration to create their own paintings. Mixed media used were: oil pastels, watercolors, and colored construction paper. Students were encouraged to use swirl lines, and bright colors to represent Hundertwasser eccentric personality. They nailed it 🎯 ❤️🎨
Students learned foreground, middle ground and background in this Multi-media project. They began with a guided drawing activity of their penguins. Students then collaged their beach backgrounds with colored construction paper and drew their beach details in their “sandscape”. Last students cut out and glued their penguins🐧 to the foreground.

Here is one of my many animated introductory lessons. Students love my Bitmoji. My videos are great to increase student engagement, motivation and enhance learning.
Here is an animated Video I created with my Bitmoji to help my students learn about landscapes with a cool song to help them remember where and how to place objects in the Foreground, Middle ground, and Background. I also teach them a cool dance along with learning the song 🎵 💃🏽🎨❤️
