  11. 11. Photographic images and illustrations that show mostly land or sea are landscapes or seascapes. Are pictures and illustrations of the Golden Gate Bridge landscapes or seascapes? Why do you think this?
  12. 12. We are going to make a collage of the Golden Gate Bridge!
  13. 13. 1 – Draw a curvy line in pencil
  14. 14. 2 – Draw a straight, horizontal, line in pencil
  15. 15. 3 – Draw a slightly curvy, horizontal, line in pencil
  16. 16. 4 – Color the bottom part with blue oil pastel. This will the bay water.
  17. 17. 5 – Smear the blue by coloring over it with white oil pastel. This will make the water look more realistic.
  18. 18. 6 – Pick a dark or light green. Color the triangle with green you pick. This will be one side of the bay.
  19. 19. 7 – Use the other shade of green to color the other side of the bay.
  20. 20. 8 – Draw and color some white, fluffy, clouds in the sky with the white oil pastel.
  21. 21. 9 – use the green oil pastels to create texture on the land (I made lines; you can make any simple shape you like)
  22. 22. 10 – Hand out long, pre-cut, orange paper strips to students
  23. 23. 11 – Place strips on your paper like this; DO NOT glue yet!
  24. 24. 12 – Mark these places on the strips in pencil. Note one set is higher than the other!
  25. 25. 13 – Cut the strips and glue them in place. Note – it is easier to put the glue on the blue paper and then stick on the strips!
  26. 26. 14 – Cut 4 small strips and glue them on (you might have to trim them to make them fit)
  27. 27. 15 – Add another 4 small strips and 1 large strip for the driving part of the bridge
  28. 28. 16 – Cut one long strip in ½, hot-dog style. Glue the 2 skinny pieces down diagonally
  29. 29. 17 – Cut another long piece in ½ hot dog style. Glue the 2 skinny pieces down diagonally
  30. 30. 18 – Use scratch paper and/or crayons to add “extras” to make the artwork your own!
