Make Free-Fall Foreshortening Art!
Have a blast teaching your child foreshortening by creating a falling self-portrait. This project makes learning foreshortening and visual perspective immediate, fun and easy! This is also a great way to discuss texture, overlapping and facial expressions.
You can modify this project for different age groups depending on the materials you use. Crayons and pastels are great for younger kids, while colored pencils or tempera paint are perfect for challenging older kids. Oil pastels look great for the bottom of the shoes to create a rubbery-look.
