For their painting unit, the 8th grade students created their own watercolor paintings, focusing on atmospheric perspective. We took a look at 18th century artwork from Asia, specifically from China, Japan and the Koreas. We used their style as inspiration to create the paintings you see below. Students used atmospheric perspective in their first painting and then experimented with the watercolor to create a unique background in the second. To complete their work, students learned how to write their name in Korean to sign their art.
