This painting lesson was inspired by the Earth From Above photographs by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. My sixth grade students reacted and responded to several of his photographs and created these interpretive landscapes using the tempera batik technique. See more.
The 8 x 8 inch paintings were created on 80 lb drawing paper, using sharpie marker, tempera paint and india ink. Read more about the tempera batik technique on my blog.
