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.
There are so many great Van Gogh examples, you could easily tie it in with a Van Gogh lesson.
