Layered Cityscape Painting

Layered Building DiagramI’ve found that most students, even young ones, love to draw buildings. The only thing is that they tend to put them all in just one line. The Pinterest image above inspired the idea of encouraging them to go the other direction – creating many, many layers. The right painting was made today by Lola, a talented fourth grader. I love that she chose to paint a lot of her windows yellow to show someone was home. So sweet.
