Artwork with perspective – Cityscape

Create this gorgeous artwork and teach the idea of perspective in drawing. The children loved this, as can be seen by their creations. Read on to find out how you can recreate this.

When starting, it is important to draw diagonals that go through a centre point. Make the space for the sky and rub out the inner lines. Then, draw the doors to separate the buildings. Next, start on the different features of each building. Note that when drawing the windows, they  must take the shape of the buildings by keeping all window lines parallel to the lines of the building; this is the trickiest part. We had great fun creating!

Here are pictures of some amazing artwork produced and the final display. We tried different mediums. See which one you like the best and try it out with your class or on your own. 🙂
