Students will learn about realistic and representative styles of painting and drawing, and learn techniques to achieve these through colour theory, mixing, drawing and brush work techniques. Postcard subject matter could vary depending on ties with social science/science/English units, and could include Yukon flora or landscapes. Students will later have an opportunity to write a message on the back of their work to use it as a postcard, card, valentine, etc.
