Nidhi, a student in my adult classes had generously donated a bunch of picture postcards from her various travels around the globe. I used these as a starting point for an assignment on landscape and colour. Students selected their postcard and pasted it anywhere on their art sheet. Using paint and crayons, they extended the landscape , matching colours closely and adding details. In the process, they learnt about space, background and middle ground and foreground as well.
