Summer Day and Winter Night

As the year rolls on, we see the seasons change around us. Each one has its own trademark visual elements; the brown, fallen leaves of autumn, the dark nights and snow flakes of winter, the budding blossoms of spring, and the clear blue skies of summer. With this in mind, I set about planning a lesson that would highlight the visual drama of different seasons by contrasting two against each other.

Students were given the instruction to draw and paint a landscape half in summer and half in winter. They divided their landscape page with a diagonal line, keeping the summer elements on one side and the winter elements on the other. Once drawn, these landscapes were painted with tempera paint and then a few extra details were added with wax crayon.
