4th Grade Victorian Architecture

The 4th Grade students learned about Victorian Architecture and the characteristics of a Victorian style home.  Victorian homes where usually at least three stories high, were very large, had tons of windows, dormers, and arches, had large front porches, and either a tower or turret.  Students had to design their own Victorian style home and had to have these characteristics in their home when designing them.  Students also learned what a landscape is and how to create foreground, middle ground and background in their landscape to create depth.  Students were able to add creative details to their landscape.  Finally we talked about how artists create different moods/feelings in their art depending on which colors they use.  Students were able to use the color black to create a more night time/spooky mood in their art.

  1. These look so good! Fantastic work by all! Is it chalk they used to colour with? and what sort of pen have they used for the details?
