David Hockney: Abstract Landscapes

It's been a while, so let's just jump right in!  Second Graders have been working hard learning all about how to create depth in a landscape.  We started by looking at some David Hockney landscapes and learned to identify the horizon line, foreground, middle ground and background.  We then
learned that artists can make things look near and far by using overlapping, changing the size of objects and changing the placement of objects.  We always practice these new skills in our sketchbooks first.  Finally we created our own David Hockney inspired abstract landscapes.  And here is how they came out!
