- Draw a landscape, cityscape or seascape.
- Create a color sketch of their landscape, cityscape or seascape.
- Create art without using the usual tools and interpret their drawings with torn paper.
Show examples of different landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes. Discuss similarities and differences between them.
Have each child draw a design of their choice on Cream Manila Drawing Paper and write what colors they will use.
Demonstrate how to tear the Fadeless® Paper using your fingers close together.
Then demonstrate how they should leave pockets while gluing to insert other pieces of paper.
Have children then transfer their design to a 12″ x 18" piece of White Tru-Ray® Construction Paper, using only torn paper, making sure they cover the entire sheet.
When completed, let dry. Trim edges about 1/2" on all sides. Glue to a piece of 12" x 18" Tru-Ray® Black Construction Paper for a finished look.
