4th grade perspective
The fourth graders learned about tulipmania - an economic bubble that happened way before the bubbles of today's financial woes. It was fun to talk about supply and demand and what that does to the human psyche. Because of the tulipmania in Holland, we now can look at glorious fields filled with carefully-planned out fields of colorful tulips. The fourth graders used this as the inspiration for their one-point perspective drawing. Look at how they made the tulips so tiny as they got closer to the vanishing point. Look at how they layered the ground (the orthogonal lines) with green grass or brown dirt before adding the oil pastels. Magnificent!
