Fourth graders began with one-point perspective, a method of creating space using a single vanishing point on the horizon line. We used some of artist Peter Max's style characteristics with colorful sky/space themes.
Fifth graders added a second vanishing point to increase the challenge! We looked at photos of cities to help us understand this point of view. Straight edges made from mat board scraps are perfect for drawing straight lines and connecting to vanishing points - they are much quieter than metal or wooden rulers.
