Discover art in the Bow Gallery at KAM. How do artists depict the world around them? How can we create art that relates to what we see in our world?

Landscape paintings show us natural scenery like mountains, buildings, and other views outside. This printable shows paintings that are part of the Krannert Art Museum collection. They are landscapes of cities, rivers, and tropical places.

Activities include identifying the seasons in a landscape painting and thinking about landscapes as sometimes showing places we can see in real life or a photograph.

We can also get creative and make our own landscapes from what we see when we look out a window, from a photograph of a place we've been, or from a place that exists in a story or our imagination. (That's what Charles Burchfield did when he painted The Four Seasons.)
