5th graders learned how to draw a city scene with one-point perspective. This meant that they created a vanishing point with converging lines. They learned to use their ruler to draw every line towards the vanishing point for the side of the buildings facing the street. We spent a long time exploring this concept, drawing, revising, and enhancing our work.
Students used a photograph of Chicago to create a contour line drawing of the city skyline. Then they created a new layer and colored it from underneath. See the gallery of cityscapes on Artsonia here.
