Learning perspective starts with noticing that the closer objects are, the bigger they appear. If students draw a landscape with just large trees and a small house, they are guaranteed to end up with a drawing that has depth to it.
1. Draw a simple small house as shown in pencil. Add at least three trees that go off the top and the bottom of the page.
2. Color in all of the drawing with oil pastels.
3. Trace all the lines with a black pastel.
