RE:[teacherartexchange] What would you do?

 Thank you! It's an old chapel, on of my favourite assignments for my
students...LOL The rest of the school is modern and not so interesting,
unfortunately. I do have the beach at about 500 meters, but it's too
distracting, I cannot take them there... They will want to go to the water!

I have yet to teach proper perspective, for now I am just showing them how
things look smaller or larger from where we stand. I have taught them how to
watch for horizontals, verticals and oblique with the pencil method. I also
taught them to draw what they see and not what they think... they are
seeing... It's always rewarding when a student realizes that point suddenly!
I am trying to teach them to see...

Wow, you have lovely landscaping to draw. Our new school has very little,
but I'm thinking about doing it next week. The last thing I wanted to teach
them was space and perspective. Instead of trying to teach them one point
or two point, I'm thinking of just talking about how things get smaller and
higher on the paper the farther away they are. We do have some baby trees
Maybe I can take them out there and have them draw. We don't have drawing
boards, but they could just take a book or something.
