Pastoral in Pastel

As part of a larger landscape unit, 5th graders have drawn pastel landscapes based on their sculptures.  These drawings emphasized the “Illusion of Depth” on a 2D image and focused on size, perspective, overlapping and use of fore, middle and backgrounds.

Color and heavy layering of pastels were also crucial to the success of these drawings and served as a color palette for the landscape sculptures that will be finding their way to this blog soon.
