Forests inspired by the artist Emily Carr

After viewing the paintings of Emily Carr, the third grade students were inspired to create forest paintings! Emily Carr is a Canadian artist who drew inspiration for her paintings by her natural surroundings on the northwest coast. The students viewed pictures of the Manistee National Forest, and we discussed the differences between the forests of the northwest coast and the forests in the midwest. They used tints and tones in order to indicate highlights and shadows.
