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.
Tree Tops and Autumn Moon is inspired by Schrag’s beautiful paintings of fall landscapes with various painted lines and vivid chalk pastel colors.
Autumn Wind and Stars focuses on the beauty of movement in the sky, expressed with painted lines and textures in the chalk pastel trees.
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.
