Karl Schrag: Landscapes with Lines

If your students enjoy using chalk pastels and tempera paint, these delightful mixed media projects are perfect for your art lesson library.

I love using bold, bright colors of tempera paint splashed on paper. These 3 art lessons inspired by the artist Karl Schrag are simple, successful and fun.

Project One:

Tree Tops and Autumn Moon is inspired by Schrag’s beautiful paintings of fall landscapes with various painted lines and vivid chalk pastel colors.

Project Two:

Autumn Wind and Stars focuses on the beauty of movement in the sky, expressed with painted lines and textures in the chalk pastel trees.

Project Three:

Summer Sun is a bright painting with a variety of painted lines radiating from the sun. This project is an explosion of color.

These lessons provide a collaboration between elements of art, various media, composition and color, along with art history.

This 29 page digital lesson contains 3 colorful lessons that are designed so that every child will be a successful artist.

The PDF includes:
Step by Step full-color photo tutorials for each lesson

These lessons are great for ages 7-12 but any age student can create a beautiful painting with these directions.

I love teaching students fun and exciting projects and hope that you will find my projects enjoyable for your students. I enjoy seeing my students start with a blank canvas and explore using art materials to create beautiful masterpieces.
