FREE ART LESSON + PROJECT FOR KIDS
DRAW ONE POINT PERSPECTIVE: A SCHOOL HALLWAY
Learn how to draw one-point perspective as we illustrate a school hallway filled with lockers and classroom doors using colors and items unique to your own school hall. Then invite your viewers to walk though your school.
My favorite part about this project... there are no mistakes in art! Have fun drawing special additions that make your hallway special.

The video is approximately 20 minutes, but the drawing may take closer to 45 minutes; plan longer if your child decides to add color. Remember, this video can be paused at any point if you need more time to complete a step.
This art lesson + project is for all ages but geared towards the junior high level.
YOUNGER STUDENT OPTION
Have a preschooler or younger child who wants to create alongside their older sibling but is not quite ready to follow along with the video? A printable version of the school hallway drawing is available (free!). Print the pdf copy and encourage your child to trace and color the drawing: School Hallway Coloring Page.
Add in hallway features that make the drawing unique -- room numbers, classroom names, posters, locker colors, floor and ceiling designs, etc.
Changing up the media is also encouraged. Instead of colored pencils, use watercolor paints or markers to add color. Just be sure to use appropriate paper for your medium choice.
