Download Lesson Plan

This is the perfect lesson to marry art history, architecture, and drawing. Students will use a wide array of elements and principles to achieve a stunning composition. After creating a sky inspired by Starry Night, students will use their observational skills to create drawings of buildings to collage on top. This is a great opportunity to learn about a specific style of architecture, like Art Deco, or to highlight buildings in your own area. Either way, this lesson is particularly good for teaching students to draw what they see instead of what they think they see. Students will be impressed with themselves after completing such detailed and spectacular multi-media compositions.

If you’re looking for a book to introduce this lesson, A Walk in New York by
Salvatore Rubbino is a great choice.
