As the 6th graders learned about the Renaissance, I felt it was important for them to learn that it is thanks to the Renaissance that artists have perspective as we now know it. We looked at drawings of buildings pre and post Renaissance and compared them to photographs. It was easy to see the vanishing point in the photographs and clear that the post-Renaissance artwork had figured it out. So, because puberty-age children are totally into themselves we drew our names! What could be better?
