Cityscapes provide a way to introduce a lot of basic skills. We have start will lessons on layout: spacing and what lines your eye follows. Next we look for repeating patterns, lines and shapes, overlapping, and back versus foreground. Next, we learn about choosing different media: oil pastel, crayon, cut paper, washes, marker, pencil, colored pencil, stamping, and tracing. Next, we look through images of cityscapes, thinking back to what we learned about dimension, and working in our journals. Finally, we design our own works.
