Lesson Objectives

Students will create depth in an artwork by showing overlapping, placement, and size relation.

Students will use two-point perspective to create architectural objects in the landscape.

Students will apply the rules of atmospheric perspective to artwork.

Teaching Strategies

  • Review the different ways artists show depth in their work.
  • Demonstrate to students how to create buildings using two-point perspective.
  • Show examples of ‘extra details’ that students can use in their final project.
  • Demonstrate how to create desired techniques with watercolor.
