News Report on the use of space in a landscape

Second graders are using DoInk's Green Screen iPad app to create a news report on art vocabulary relating to space. Fall Semester, students examined two landscapes; Pieter Bruegel the Elder's "Hunters in the Snow" and Grant Wood's "Stone City, Iowa". Students are working in small groups to create their news report. First step, choose a landscape painted by Grant Wood or Pieter Bruegel from the landscapes below. Step two, develop a skit and designate speaking parts by writing Character’s Name, then colon or dash and finally speaking part. In the script, students must include the following art vocabulary; foreground, middle ground, background, and horizon line. Students must include the artist's name and year painted.
