It All Depends on Your Perspective

In art class, the fourth graders will be learning about perspective, how to make something look like it has three dimensions on a two-dimensional surface. The kids could draw boxes...but, what about buildings!?!

So even before Ms. Yazbeck, our art teacher, started to teach them about creating the illusion of depth and space, she took them outside to draw some of the buildings that will be demolished during Phase 1. Here are some of the results below (which you can click on to make bigger).

Later in the semester, we'll post some more of their drawings and see how the kids are doing with perspective. They will have to sketch some other buildings, though. The ones shown here will be gone.
