Augustus John and Welsh Mountains
Exploring Augustus John's paintings of Snowdonia.
Age Group : 7-9,9-11,11-14
Subject : Art & Design
Topic : Art history, Landscapes
Keywords : Augustus John, Snowdonia, Welsh artists, Welsh Mountains,
Notes : Pupils could make sketches from real life of landscape they can see from the school or a brief field trip if possible. Pupils then do colour mixing exploration to get a range of landscape colours. Ask them to paint single landscape colours onto A5 pieces of rough paper and when they have dried, to tear them into strips and experiment with overlaying and underlaying them in order to create a collaged landscape on a piece of heavier A3 paper.
