Art for Harold and the Purple Crayon

Today for art we learned about perspective and how we can use this technique when drawing to reflect how things far away look smaller than things up close. We also learned about the horizon line (which also led us to discuss the difference between horizontal and vertical) and the vanishing point.

Here’s our example from the book.

We looked up some examples of pictures that exhibit a perspective view.

Elliot then set to work on his own drawing with a horizon line and a vanishing point.

We added “perspective” to our Choices Artists Can Make to Add Interest notebook page.
