The Nutcracker Landscape Paintings


This is a fantastic holiday lesson that I saw on the Deep Space Sparkle website HERE.
It's great for at-home learning as it comes with templates for the characters as well as a video tutorial.

I did this project with my Grades 4 - 6 students last year. I gave them the option of drawing their own Nutcracker character.

They started by drawing their fanciful trees on turquoise cardstock.


Paint the snow in white tempera.


Paint the trees various pastel colours.


Once dry, outline and add patterns.


Then they worked on their characters- coloured them and cut them out.


Glue onto the landscape and add some painted snow in the sky.


Some Grade 4 - 6 results- love how these turned out!
