I did this lesson with seventh graders, most of who have not learned anything about perspective drawing. This was a wonderful introduction to perspective drawing & landscapes. I would recommend it for 5th-7th grade. We did a 1 point perspective worksheet first.
The use of soft pastel on colored construction paper is no fail.
I love setting the kids up with a project that is destined to look great.
Students had to draw a landscape and include crop lines some how.
Tracing in sharpie before applying the pastel was optional.
These were a few of the examples I showed the kids. If you'd like my entire slide show leave your email in the comments and I'll happily send it along to you.
*** I now have my slide show available via this link. ***
There are so many great Van Gogh examples, you could easily tie it in with a Van Gogh lesson.
