Exploring the Natural Landscape Through Paint
<< Which Artists? <<
Kurt Jackson, Helen Glassford
In this pathway, suitable for ages 9 to 16, we explore painters who are inspired by the natural landscape. Use their work as the basis for conversation with pupils.
Continue your exploration by using the AccessArt resources below to enable your pupils to make their own art in response to the landscape around them.
If you use this resource in your setting, please tag us on social media: #InspiredBy @accessart (facebook, twitter) @accessart.org.uk (instagram) and share the url. Thank you!
