This project was so much fun! It was a spin off of this cityscape artwork. I wanted to try out some metallic art supplies and we used every single last thing for these. Here is the supply list:
- 12×18 Black Construction Paper
- Crayola FX Metallic Crayons
- Faber-Castell Metallic Colored Pencils
- Sax Versa Temp Metallic Paint
- Metallic Sharpies
The first day, students looked at pictures of buildings and cities and designed their own city using a variety of shapes and overlapping.
Everyone traced over their lines with metallic sharpies and colored in their buildings with metallic crayons and colored pencils.
That took up the next couple of classes. Once most kids had colored in most of their design, I showed they how to paint concentric circles in the sky. They had to think and plan very carefully so that their picture had depth from overlapping.
The kids did a fantastic job!
