2nd Grade: Art of Japan

2nd Grade has been studying landscapes. In particular, we looked at the landscape scrolls of Japan, and the ink/watercolor washes they used to paint them. The students were eager to ask questions and learn everything they could about the history of the scrolls and how they were used, which really impressed me! They soaked up the information like sponges and applied it to their paintings and their conversations while we worked. I think the finished products are simply beautiful. I cannot wait to hang them up!
