Perspective - the art of drawing so as to give the right impression of distance or height
Lesson: Snowman in the Falling Snow - Composition Component 8F) I can use interesting negative space complements to bind the positive areas into an harmonious whole.
Supplies: Blue, orange, red, green construction paper, white photocopy paper, manila tag, white and black paint, q-tips, scissors and glue
Steps: 1) Write your name and date on the back of the large piece of construction paper. 1) cut a circle (use the paper plate provided as a tracer) and a trapezoid out of the white paper - make sure that they are large enough to cover eight tenths of your background paper. Glue them to the background. The circle is the head of the snowman and the trapezoid is the body. 2) cut a long and narrow triangle out of the orange construction paper, glue it in the top one third of the snowman's head (we want it to look like he is looking up to the falling snow) 3) cut red and green squares - enough to look like a scarf is wrapped around the snowman's neck and then trailing down. The part that trails down is to be glued onto the manila tag. Glue the scarf onto the snowman, making sure that the tail of the scarf is loose (only glue one quarter of the tail to the snowman). 4) Using white paint and a q-tip paint "snowflakes" around your background. 5) Using black paint paint a "coal" smile in the bottom one third of the snowman's face. 6) Glue you Snow Haiku to your art work.
