These  nighttime landscapes were part of a lesson on photograms and drawing.  Fourth graders worked from photos to draw detailed moths.  They used  Sharpies to trace their best drawing onto a transparency.  The transparency was arranged with weeds, ferns and grasses to create a landscape.  Stars were dots and dabs of Sharpie, and the moon was made from cut paper.  Students placed their compositions in the sun for 5 minutes, then submerged them in water.

  1. Can you tell me specifically what kind of paper they used and the process of the photogram. The results are so nice. I’d love to do that with my students some day. thanks.

  2. Do you have a list of supplies and a detailed step by step on this project? I’m trying to find an art project for our 4th grade classes. This is perfect!
