This project is a study of the landscape in winter.   We discussed the term landscape, and horizon line (the line that separates ground from sky).  After setting our scene, we learned about foreground and background.  Objects that are drawn BIG and near the bottom are in the foreground, and items that are drawn small and near the horizon line are in the background.  Grace earned this honor because of her consistent effort and creativity in the art room.
