Lesson Eighteen Integrated Concepts Language Arts: descriptive language, setting, oral language Social Studies: landforms, land use, climate Visual Art: color, line, shape, texture, space, value
Take a few minutes to study this landscape painting. What are some things you notice about the painting?
Where do you think this scene is located? Tell why. What landforms and natural features can you identify? What can you predict about the climate and season from evidence in the painting?
Now spend a few minutes looking at this painting. What do you notice about this painting?
Where could we find a scene that looks like this painting? What details in this painting provide evidence about the location? Where have you seen a place that looks similar to this painting? Can you identify the crop in this field? How can you tell? What evidence shows the season in this painting?
Let’s think about how the artists created these paintings. How would you describe how each artist used color? How does each artist give the viewer a sense of space? Can you describe how the artists showed the texture of plants, rocks, and water?
Notice how each artist used value in their painting. Value describes how dark or light each area looks. Can you point out the very dark (high value) areas in each paintings? Where are the lightest (low value) areas in each painting?
Where do you see lines in each of these paintings? Look for straight, curved, broken, and uneven lines. Lines are sometimes seen as: outlines or edges of shapes repeated marks, shapes or colors paths, roads, fences, rows
Look for geometric shapes in these paintings. In paintings, the shapes may be a little uneven or imperfect. For example, there are three thin triangle shapes in the rocks just to the left of the waterfall. Point out any squares, rectangles, triangles, circles, or other geometric shapes you can find. Also look for three dimensional shapes like spheres, cones, rectangular prisms.
Which painting would you choose as a setting for a story? Which would you choose to write a poem about? What are some words you might use in describing the setting you chose? What kind of story or poem would you write?
