Integrated Concepts

Visual Art and Language Arts: setting, main idea and details, compare

and contrast

Social Studies: space, rural, suburban and urban

Visual Art: space, shape, color, perspective, light

Science: observation, identification, evidence, light, shadow, seasons


Take a few minutes to observe this painting carefully.

What do you notice about color in this painting?

What shapes can you describe?

What objects can you identify in the scene?

Can you predict if the setting is urban, suburban or rural?


Even though paintings are flat, some parts look far away,

while other parts seem to be very close.

  • Can you figure out how the painter does that?
  • Notice what is placed at the top of the page. Is it near or far
  • away objects?
  • Look at the trees. What size are the ones that seem far away?
  • Look for examples of one object hiding or overlapping part of another
  • object. Which object appears farther away?

Now, focus on light, shadow and color in the painting.

Can you predict from the shadows where the sun may be?

Can you predict the time of day? Why do you think that?

What about the season? Does it look like winter, spring,

summer or fall? What evidence is there in the painting?


Now let’s look at a very different painting.

  • What do you notice about:
  • color?
  • space?
  • shape?
  • light and shadow?
  • near and far away objects?

What evidencecan you discover in this painting about:

  • the season of the year?
  • the time of day?
  • past, present or future setting?
  • urban, suburban or rural setting?

Can you point out any details that

may provide information about what

continent, country or region is

shown in this painting?


If we look at these paintings side by side we can

compare them.

What do you notice that is the same in each painting?

What do you notice that is different?

Which painting is more like your community?

Which looks like a place where you would choose to live?


If you were going to write a story, which painting would

you like to use as the setting for your story?

What kind of story could you write using the rural setting?

Would it be a personal narrative, an imaginative narrative,

fiction, or non-fiction, a mystery, an adventure?

How would you describe the setting so your readers could

imagine just what you see in the painting?


If you were an author, what kind of story would you

place in this urban setting?

  • What sounds and smells can you imagine
  • might be part of this setting?
  • How could you describe the setting so
  • your reader could imagine the same
  • sights, smells and sounds that you
  • are imagining?
  • What words would you use to describe:
  • the characters?
  • the cars?
  • the buildings?
  • the sky?
