Perspective Drawing: Showing Perspective with Castles, Dragons + a Princess & Frog

Please enter a quantity.

Description

Teaching perspective to young artists can be tricky.  Using castles, dragons, a princess, and frog, this drawing lesson helps makes this topic compressible and fun.

I’ve divided the activities into 3 suggested age groups.  This allows you as a teacher to tailor the lesson to fit the experience and skill level of your students. Teachers can also differentiate this lesson for students that need more of a review or more of a challenge.

This drawing lesson is NOT perspective drawing using vanishing points and a ruler.  I’ll save that for another lesson.  This lesson will help students understand the basic concepts of creating 3D space on a flat piece of paper using size and placement. 

Your kindergarten students will:

  • Identify which  objects look close or far away on a piece of paper.
  • Draw a dragon that looks farther away than the other dragons on the page.
  • Draw a princess and frogs on a page using size and placement.

Your grade 1-3 students will:

  • Learn 4 Laws of Perspective dealing with size, overlap, the horizon, and placement.
  • Draw a castle using basic shapes, using their choice of details.
  • Decide if the castle will be in the foreground, middle ground, and background.
  • Use the correct size and placement for their castle.
  • Add a princess and frog using the correct size and placement.

Your grade 4+ students will:

  • Learn 7 Laws of Perspective dealing with size, overlap, the horizon, and placement, ellipse, foreshortening and vanishing point
  • Practice drawing and shading a sphere, cube, cone, and cylinder.
  • Draw a castle using basic forms, using their choice of details.
  • Decide if the castle will be in the foreground, middle ground, and background.
  • Use the correct size and placement for their castle.
  • Add shading shadows in their picture.
  • Add a princess and frog using the correct size and placement.
