“I see art as collaboration with nature… providing a return from hectic and stress, from consumption and chaos, to meditative simplicity.”

To make our fall landscapes we used wide painters tape to create a resist for our birch trees. Oil pastels helped create texture and colour for our background. Permanent markers were used for the branches in the background and we finished off with a blue watercolour wash for the sky and black watercolour along the forest floor. The students really used their individual creativity to interpret this project and make it their own.
