The Picassos are in for a treat this afternoon when Aunty Reiko sets the scene for Venice Italy in the little chapter book Greetings From Somewhere.
Since they have art first I wanted to give them a sneak peak at where they were about to go so we took a look at this little video...
Of course this is Arty Pants Studio, so while we make our art we also get a little smarter (hee hee) so they learnt about Venice, then I used this as an opportunity to introduce them to the concept of one-point perspective.
I showed how you can create the illusion of space and depth just by the placement of your lines. We drew a Venetian land/sea scape complete with gondola with our vanishing point in the distance. Take a look!
Check out the fun at The Reading Garden!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
