Step 1

Have students research works of art throughout history that use one-point perspective such as Stella and Van Gogh.

Step 2

Students select a work of art that has a one-point perspective focus and utilizes the application of blending and mixing colors.

Step 3

Have students emulate the artist drawing in pencil onto the Sax Folding Bristol Board. The board will be folded in several areas to strengthen the perspective of the design. Have students keep this in mind when creating their layout.

Step 4

Use the Crayola Signature Line blending colored pencils to color in areas of the work being conscious of the color pallet of the original work. Students can then use the Crayola Signature Line Markers to highlight and accentuate areas if desired.

Step 5

Fold the bristol board down the center vertically and then along the two sides to emphasize the perspective of the piece.

Step 6

Mount the finished work to hold its folded form.
