Dr. Seuss Landscape Art
Dr. Seuss has been inspiring children all over the world with his whimsical landscapes, creatures, and artwork for nearly a century. His artwork and stories have a very distinct style that is easily recognizable.
In this class, we will create our own Seuss-like landscape drawings filled with imaginative trees, buildings, and creatures. Students will learn about foreground, middle ground, and background through exercising their own creativity. We will talk briefly about the basics of color theory and the use of watercolors and oil pastels.
This is a creation class where we will spend the majority of time creating our artwork. Instruction will be geared toward getting students to make full use of their paper, considering the layers of ground as well as perspective, and the unique combination of artistic materials.
