KS3 GRAPHICS / DT PROJECT- FANTASY LANDSCAPES

KS3 GRAPHICS / DT PROJECT- FANTASY LANDSCAPES

A creative and challenging project inspired by architecture. Students problem solve by firstly learning about 1 and 2 point perspective drawings and then apply their creativity to create own fantasy architecture model. Worked really well with Y9 who put all their models together to create a fantasy city. I also played them a clip of Inception to inspire them which they loved!
