Overlapping City

I decided to develop a lesson based on overlapping, but not use the same old ones I always have...
                                                        (see below the lesson from the past)
 Overlapping Snake Lesson Plan


Overlapping Hills Lesson.
THE NEW LESSON
So, I was inspired by this painting at the Furniture Store of all places. It was of an overlapping city on a hill with a reflection at the bottom.
So, I decided to make plans for this lesson. 
I asked the kids to make a scape of man made and natural things using overlapping of 3 layers. 
I showed them a slideshow filled with images of cities from various artist that were fitting to the lesson.
I tired to include as many different styles on the slideshow as possible to give them more freedom. 
I explained Visual Perspective Techniques and how our eyes and brain absorb depth and space.
I let them use crayons, colored pencils, markers, or watercolor pencils. 
These are my examples I created as aides for the students...
