Atmospheric Perspective

OOooo is that atmospheric perspective?! Absolutely! These fifth graders practiced mixing colors to create the illusion of space and we discussed atmospheric perspective.  The atmosphere has so much stuff floating around in it, that it causes objects in the distance to appear lighter in color and sometimes fuzzy.  This project was great for reinforcing painting skills and allowing students to practice self control when mixing colors.  Check out those well used palettes 🙂
