Castle Art: Lessons in 3D, Perspective, and Proportion

Our Social Studies topic of the Middle Ages was woven and integrated throughout our curriculum. This castle art project with Angela, our art specialist, took three days to complete. We learned how to incorporate 3-D, perspective, and proportion into our watercolor paintings.

Social Studies/Art/Science/Writing/Math topic:
