Painted Victorian Homes Art Lessons

I’ve done this architectural drawing lessons for the past few years. It’s a great way to teach how math and art collide. Rectangles, triangles, perspective….you name it, this project has it! As a new spin, students colored small areas with markers and painted larger areas with pan watercolor paint. We spoke about monochromatic colors, but in the end, I encouraged the students to paint according to their personal taste.

Supplies:

12″ x 18″ white paper, waterproof markers, pan watercolor paints, waterproof black pens, handouts and templates (found in Architecture Made Easy PDF)

Use the handouts available in my PDF for inspiration. Templates, made from tag board, make the “construction” of the homes super easy.

Time: Approx. 3-4, 45-minute sessions

Draw basic shape, windows, roofline and doors with pencil then add all the detail in waterproof pen.

    I teach painted ladies K-5. With my K-2, we do a “draw-with-me” lesson. With color markers, we draw a different house in each class adding the elements unique to the Victorian Style houses. Then students use crayons and architectural texure sheets to complete their houses.

    Patty,
    I do a similar lesson, but we color using colored pencils and architectural texture tiles. The students get instant brinks, stone, flagstone, shingles, etc. The neat textures also inspire them to finish coloring neatly right to the edges. And… they color harder so the texture shows up. :o)

      I’ve always wanted to try the texture boards! This would be a perfect time to try. Thanks for the great tip. Next art supply order, I’ll purchase some.

    crave it when it is not there. Lots of game internet sites

    Fabulous. I do a similar activity with Howard Arkley as my focus artist. I use fluorescent paints, watercolours and permanent markers. Thanks for sharing.

      Patty, can this project be done in one class session? I am teaching 3rd graders. How would you simplify it so that it could accomplished in 50 minutes (10 min for clean up)?
      Thank you!

        This particular lesson is meant for older kids (ages 10-12). It’s rather detailed so it might be too much for 3rd graders. This lessons takes about 3 @ 45-50 minute class for older kids.
