Activity 2 - Landscape and Environment

(A) Many of the art works show landscapes. You can find these by typing "landscapes" in the simple search or choosing "landscapes" as the subject in the advanced search.

Look through these works, describing the following:

  • The use of color
  • People - How do the people interact with their environment?
  • Objects in the picture - Are there buildings, plants or other objects in the picture? Where are they? What are they like?
  • Foreground and Background - What differences can you see between the foreground and background in each picture?

(B) From among the works you have studied, choose 4 that have something in common. It could be the subject matter or the way the works are drawn or painted.

(C) Write a short story using all these pictures as illustrations.
