Try having students cut light cardboard shapes of hills,
mountains, trees, bushes and rocks. Use the shapes as
templates to rub pastels over leaving negative spaces
colored. Start in background and overlap shapes as you
move forward. Would suggest this as a series of lessons.
1 / drawing landscapes to embed concepts
2 / cutting template shapes
3 / creating chalk landscapes
