Natural Landscapes

Use the film below to enable students to explore rolling natural landscapes around the UK. 

Encourage close and slow looking by talking as they draw – use your voice to attract their attention to different qualities.

Try the same exercise using different materials, ie handwriting pen, ink and nib, using a ruler to make all the lines etc. Invite students to think about how the seasons might affect colours and the light in the landscape.
