Landforms

The Museum has developed several lessons for use in conjunction with its on-line Collections.

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.

What People Are Saying

This museum was not only beautiful but expansive in its art collections. We visited with our 9 yr.-old granddaughter and she thoroughly enjoyed it as much as we did.
