Mrs. Heywood and Jo were back again recently to work with the students on perspective. We have been studying this concept in science as well, learning about how things farther away in space appear smaller when in actuality, some of those bodies are immense.

Students used this concept to create images of a field of tulips in honor of the arrival of spring. Tulips close up were drawn with careful detail, while tulips in the distance may only appear as a speck.

After some discussion and demonstration, students got to work! 

Oscar, Xavier, and Dyna working carefully.

This student adds detail and more color.

Xavier is proud of his work.

Here are all of the students' works of art.

Thanks again to Mrs. Heywood, Jo, and those who have donated the art supplies. We are extremely grateful to have the opportunity to learn about and make art. 


  1. Dear Mr. Pahl,
    I extremely enjoyed that project because it was fun to paint something that had to do with our learning. I can't wait for another project like this.

  2. That is some beautiful artwork! I love all of the colors. :)

  3. Dear Room 12,
    What a great collection of artwork you have all created - such vibrant colors! I am going to school to be a teacher and would love to hear what your favorite part of this perspective project was!
    Your friend, Caleb (pre-service teacher at Western Washington University!)
