Into the Distance: Landscape Drawings & Ceramic Tiles

Third grade students learned perspective drawing techniques in order to create distance in a landscape drawing. While using rulers to make guidlines drawn from a vanishing point on the horizon, they made either a field, road or winding river receding into the distance. When adding cars, trees or people they were careful to make objects in the foreground bigger and gradually smaller as they went into the distance to show depth and perspective. Students used pencil to create sketches and then transferred these drawings onto tiles, using glazes and creating ceramic trivets.
