Last year we worked on the idea of one-point perspectives learning about fore, middle, and background. I also used students on our school's field to demonstrate the concept of "that which is closer appears larger." Although this landscape painting project hints a little at some of the material we previously covered, the major objective(s) this lesson was to learn mixing colors and rendering objects (mountains, trees, etc). As always students have a free choice on what sort of landscape they wish to create. Below are samples of the evidence.
