Will it snow this afternoon? I sure hope so! Here are some snowy landscapes by my second grade artists. We read Robert Frost's poem, Stopping by woods on a snowy evening and then we talked about how atmospheric perspective can make faraway objects look soft and grey. We also talked about space in terms of foreground, middle ground and background. I didn't tell the kids how to draw the animals, but many of them put in really cute little fawns and bunnies based on the illustrations in my book.

Here are some 5th-grade versions created for a yearbook competition. The kids are dying to know who won, but I can't tell until June!
The last one is a "Terminator Tiger." Gotta love the creativity. One of the tigers with tattoos may be gang related, but to an innocent eye like mine, I loved the design and put it smack dab in the middle of the bulletin board... I have a lot to learn!
