Wolf Kahn Landscapes

FIrst and second graders learned about artist Wolf Kahn.  Wolf Kahn is well known for his paintings and pastels of landscapes and trees.  He spends summers and falls on his farm in Vermont, so many of these landscapes seem quite familiar.

First and second grade artists learned about the parts of a landscape: foreground, middle ground and background.  We divided our paper into three sections and used blended chalk pastels to create the layers of the background, then drew trees over the top. 

Here are some examples of Wolf Kahn's landscapes. 

Here are the chalk pastel landscapes created by first and second grade artists.
