"Adopt the pace of nature,
her secret is patience."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Facebook reminded me that this time last year the girls and I were farm sitting for friends in Helvetia, Oregon. Oh, take me back to wide open spaces, big blue sky, and green as far as the eye can see. Take me back to air so lush and fresh (unless you are standing in the chicken coop) that you get a little heady when you breath it in. Take me back to the place where the green grows green and lichen and moss hang from every tree.
If I can't click my heels and land in the Emerald Forest I am going to "go there" in an art lesson. This week's mixed media project is an homage to the art of primitive pastoral landscapes and a study in color. Are you ready? These little artists made some big, bold art.
Sort your materials in color families. We had 4 tables: blue table, green table, purple table, and red table.
blue table - tempera cakes, oil pastels, craft paper
