Lesson Description

In this art class, children will be introduced to the concept of horizon.  This refers to the eye level of the viewer. It is even used to refer to the imaginary line where the sky meets the ground. Children will be shown a few examples to help them understand the concept better. They will begin by learning to draw the line of horizon. They will be taught that the ground lies below the line of horizon, while the sky lies above.

The children will learn how to draw mountains on the line of horizon. They will be taught how to create mountains with variation to add the effect of distance. They will learn how to colour the drawing neatly, using oil pastels. They will also learn how to create details in the drawing by using the layering technique.

Materials required:

  • A sheet of paper
  • A pencil
  • Oil pastels
