4th Grade Russian Architecture

 Fourth Grade Art students are studying the art of architecture.  We looked closely at the St. Basil's Cathedral located in Moscow, Russia.  Looking at this whimsical structure gave us plenty of inspiration to design our own versions.

 We practiced creating value with black markers using cross-hatching and hatching shading techniques for the different gray values.  Students are also using a variety of different textures and patterns to decorate their own versions of the cathedral towers.
 These are truly amazing drawings!  A big thanks to the art blog Deep Space Sparkle for this amazing lesson idea!
