This week's Sm'Arties class is inspired by this little handout from Practical Pages (Now THERE'S an on-the-ball homeschool Mum! I love knowing that many many miles away (or kilometers?) another homeschool family is reaching out to share the wealth of their knowledge and resources. Thank you, Nadine!).
Now that we have our pencils sharpened, this week we did a few quick drawings to demonstrate perspective. As I was drawing along, I encouraged the children to do "kindergarten-style trees" - quick, quick!
Their homework is to bring back 7 little drawings on a sheet of 11"x17" paper, showing these seven laws of perspective. I hope they all "see" foreshortening better than I do :) I expect this little lesson to yield fruit in the way of better drawings and paintings all year long. I wish I had learned this when I was a child.
I took one single picture, and then my camera's battery quit. Here's the picture:
