Online Programs: Landforms

Learning about Landforms Through Landscape Painting

Landforms such as towering mountains, gaping canyons, and plunging waterfalls are the physical features of the earth’s surface that distinguish a sense of place for geography as well as invoke wonder and reverence for the landscape artist. This is to say, landforms are the central subject for both geography and landscape art, and investigation into either discipline reveals more about the nature of the other and of nature itself.

This Unit moves back and forth and through the two disciplines of geography and art to learn more about landforms and our reaction to them.

Our educational programs are made possible through the continuing commitment of dedicated supporters. We thank them for their generous contributions.
