For this special painting, students took photos of special places where they live and chose one to create as a painting. Our goal was to represent the world around us. We visited the artist Danielle Clouse Gast as inspiration. She paints many places in this area around the lakes and in the countryside. We also learned more about landscapes and art by Grant Wood, another Iowan artist.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once you grow up.
