Create beautiful layered 3-D scenes in the striking style of famous Canadian artist, Ted Harrison. The unique technique? Glue! It dries clear!
Discover a contemporary artist! Ted Harrison paints majestic vistas, such as those in Canada’s Yukon, with bold lines and colors. Find some of his illustrations and discuss his painting techniques. Harrison uses wavy lines to break up space and create perspective. He chooses bright and unusual colors and simplified shapes. Tiny creatures accent his work.
Choose a scene. What landforms are found where you live? Rolling hills? Sand dunes on a beach? Mountains? Think about how you can use color and line to communicate the beauty of your area much like Harrison does when he paints Canadian scenes. How do the colors change at different times of the day?
Experiment. Sketch your ideas with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils on paper. Just erase if you change your mind! If you like, include tiny, whimsical figures. Experiment with different color combinations until you achieve a pleasing effect.
Make wavy glue lines. With your sketch as a guide, use Crayola School Glue to outline your picture on white or light-colored construction paper or white foam board. Air-dry the glue overnight.
Fill the spaces. Use thick layers of Crayola Twistables to color in the spaces between the white lines under the glue. Mix colors to get unusual hues. Lightly buff the color with a soft tissue.
