Polar Landscapes

Here's another great little project inspired by That Artist Woman. I adapted Gail's polar bear project a little to suit my grade 6/7 class who are currently studying polar regions. See her post with instructions here.

My students painted a snowy landscape using cool colours in different tones before painting the sky with a blue edicol dye sprinkled with salt. We used a plastic lid dipped in white paint to stamp on a sun/moon shape in the sky whilst the dye was still wet.

Each student created their own polar bear stencil from thick card and once background work was dry, used white paint to stencil polar bears into the scene.
