To end the year I used this project that I originally saw on There's a Dragon in My Artroom. I modified it to a colored pencil and watercolor paint lesson instead of tempera paint to make the setup and cleanup a little easier. When there's only 2 weeks left to the school year, convenience is key. We began the lesson by discussing perspective and the difference between shape/form and 2D/3D. I had them chose a side to demonstrate a light source and color the buildings accordingly. I encouraged students to add their own personal creative ideas into it to give it a more illustrative quality. Not everyone finished, but those that did had some really cute results.
