    Week of 3/23/20-3/27/- 5th Grade Half Picture- Complete the Picture

    Overview:  Last week we were reviewing 1 pt and 2 pt perspective. We have been practicing buildings, roads, windows, and scenery. If you would like to continue or complete with coloring the drawing that is great (refer back to week 1). This week we will be completing the drawing with a product in the house.

    Estimated Time: 20 minutes; more if you like, but you can always stop and continue next week

    Explanation: This activity you will choose a product from around the house or any image you have at home and divide the picture in half. You can just cover up a half or fold half behind or cut half (like we did with your portrait). The half you are drawing you will need, so do not get rid of it.

    Materials that are Needed:  Paper, Pencil (or colored pencils or crayons), ruler or straight edge

    Things to know: The half picture you are drawing needs to be next to you WHILE you are drawing. You may use a ruler or pencil to use the measurement method. This do NOT have to be symmetrical.

    Tasks: Choose any product in the house (cereal box, book cover, picture, etc.) and draw one half to scale. Start with the major focal points and begin with simple shapes. Details/words are always last.

    Feedback: Please keep all your work in a folder or a notebook to collect at a later date. If you can or are able: you can take a picture and email me at atheis@cbsd.org and/or tweet @AliTheisArt! I will also be posting examples with the twitter handle #CBTheis5thgrade just for my 5th graders! If your teacher has a class Seesaw account setup, you can also share on there.

    Week of 3/17/20-3/20/20- 5th Grade Perspective

    Overview:  We will be reviewing 1 pt and 2 pt perspective. We have been practicing buildings, roads, windows, and scenery.

     Estimated Time: 25 minutes or more if you like

    Explanation: This activity you will be able draw a building in perspective. There will be a horizon line, a vanishing point, and a building that will show what is near and what is far.

    Materials that are Needed:  Paper, Pencil (or colored pencils or crayons), ruler or straight edge, use guide below to draw over if needed

    Things to know: There are ultimately rules to the direction of line. There are going to be vertical lines (up and down), horizontal lines (side to side), and lines leading to the vanishing point from corners. You can also move the horizon line up and down and you can move the vanishing point to the side (does not have to be center).

    Tasks: Practice using a ruler or straight edge to determine where horizon line is (green line below) and choose a vanishing point (labeled). Begin with a square or rectangle in a far corner (further from the point the more room you have on the buildings to add details).If the side of the building is a vertical line, the next “end of the building” is also a vertical line (yellow lines below). If the top roof line is a horizontal line, the next “end of the roof” is also a horizontal line. All corners of buildings, windows, doors, sidewalks, etc. are all extending to the vanishing point (red lines below).
