Fifth grade students at Lafayette School are researching states. They are showing what they know about each state by designing a "Big Letter Postcard" for the state. Students are learning how to mix watercolors, create one point perspective letters and demonstrating what they have learned about their state in a visual manner.
Lafayette students in Ms. Brakeman's class learned about concepts of depth and applied them to their illustrations of their stories.
This student showed the foreground, middleground and background in her work. She placed her people in different vertical positions too.
Notice the overlapping hills and the bunnies getting smaller as they get farther away.
These houses are clearly in the foreground and overlap the mountains and hills in the backgroud.
The dinosaur skeleton is drawn toward the bottom of the page and overlaps the background creating depth.
