There are many different ways to draw or paint pictures of God’s amazing creation.
In today’s post, I’m sharing several awesome tutorials that will help you explore the limitless subject matter that we find in nature.
Step by Step
This is an awesome site with 16 step by step landscape tutorials. They’re good for middle graders but might be a bit complex for younger children. However, it should be easy to simplify them a bit if your preschoolers or early grade children find them too challenging.
Next, here’s a tutorial on how to draw in basic (1-point) perspective, an important skill if your landscapes are going to look realistic.
Finally, this video could best be described as “a blast from the past.” The artist is Jon Gnagy (read about him here). He was the original “TV Art Teacher.” This is an excerpt from one of his TV programs. It’s black and white, and his delivery is very old school. (It’s okay for the kids to giggle a bit.) Nevertheless, he was a good teacher and your children might find themselves having quite a bit of fun as they draw along with him.
Here’s a bonus video. This is a really creative project where you can draw a landscape and create a see-through stained-glass window effect. Fun stuff!
