Third Grade Trees

Students looked at landscapes painted by Canadian artists, including Emily Carr and focused on the expressive skies. After learning how to paint trees, we looked at how various artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Gustav Klimt and local artist, Alynn Guerra created tree forms with expressive and symbolic characteristics.
