This week’s art lesson was all about parades, and utilizing the set-up of a parade to demonstrate distances and background, foreground, etc, in artwork. They were to create the crowd and background of the parade on one piece of paper, then, on separate paper, craft the band members. Next, they were to cut them out, and place them in the appropriate location in the foreground.
I found it interesting – it seemed like doing it this way caused the kids to be a bit more accurate in their depth perception, perhaps because they weren’t trying to work with multiple depths at once. Something to ponder for future projects.
This one is Chey’s. You can see she had a bit of a glue bleed-thru issue, marker plus too much glue just don’t go together well at all.
And with Chris, we get to see some before and after the addition of the band.
