Why Lesson Planet?
High school artists observe and research the illustrations and techniques of N.C. Wyeth. They read (and reread) stories and illustrate the texts using methods inspired by Wyeth's practice. Includes detailed instructional plan and useful links, such as one about the Wyeth family of painters. Large scale acrylic-on-canvas painting is appropriate for serious studio art classes; adapt scale and media for a language arts class or shorter time period.
