Remembrance Day Art

In honour of Remembrance Day on November 11th (here in Canada) my kids painted these gorgeous poppy fields.

It was a lesson on perspective so we talked about foreground, mid-ground and background. The kids then painted a field of green grass and poppies.

I think they did a pretty good job!
