Space Museums- 2-3 Point Perspective Drawings
I first found this project by Ken Vieth in his book From Ordinary to Extraordinary. I did it two years ago, but it was quite challenging as I was a new teacher. This year I have an excellent grade 9 group that I seem to be able to do anything with. They don't complain and they are very successful. I couldn't ask for better groups.
There are several ways of having students create colours wheels. many found on Pinterest. I had my students find figures in magazines, cut them out and trace them 12 times. Then each class I had them paint a section of colours. Such as: red to yellow. Note: This was a long project. Next year I will try to find something that doesn't take as long.
KEITH HARING FIGURE DRAWING
Students created 20 of their own figure drawings. I was worried that 20 was to much but they proved me wrong. many students were able to come up with their own creative interpretations of his work. I was very impressed. I stood up at the front of the class for the first four drawings and had students create figure drawings of me using Keith's style.
