Perspective Cities

The 5th Grade students learned about drawing in Perspective to show depth and dimension. After practicing the technical drawing skills, students were encouraged to create their own city. Students were asked to draw at least 3 things in perspective (buildings, road, etc.). Afterwards, they traced their lines with Sharpies and used a variety of watercolor techniques to add color. Students then used colored pencils to enhance areas of their artwork and really make them stand out. I'm impressed with all of the different ideas the students came up with!
