Dream City!!

Students in 5th and 6th grade studied perspective in art. Each student received a pencil, eraser, piece of paper and a ruler. We started with the vanishing point in the middle of the page. Next,I showed each step in drawing a one-point perspective drawing. When the outline of the buildings, street, windows and doors were created, I encouraged the students to be really creative and use their imagination for the details of the city. They could add any stores they wanted to their city, any vehicles, or anything in the sky!!! After the details were drawn, we colored them in with colored pencil and some students chose to outline them with black sharpie marker.
