Northern Landscapes Art Lessons

Top Rated Products


Ready for an arctic adventure? Venture north to the Yukon Territories and Northern Canada and explore the art of Ted Harrison and Lawren Harris. Many of my Californian students have only read about snow and have no understanding of frozen landscapes. The art of Harris and Harrison bring this stark landscape a bit closer to home.

About Lawren Harris: Dedicated to the preservation of Canada’s landscapes, Harris pioneered a distinct painting style and was an influential member of Canada’s Group of Seven. His abstract and severe landscapes are fun to draw and paint.

About Ted Harrison: Ted Harrison’s paintings depict Yukon life and the beauty of the frozen landscape. The colors are completely opposite Harris and offer a glimpse into the rich lives of the Yukon residents.

The two lessons can be completed in two, 45-50 minute classes. Students will learn about atmospheric perspective, mixing tints and shades and understanding landscape perspective.

This packet is great for grade levels: 4-6
