Art to Remember, City on Water

I did this project with the 4th and 5th-grade students for our Art to Remember fundraiser this year. It was a real success for most students.  I was impressed with the final results and the kids were too.

The only thing that I would change about the way I presented this lesson was to make sure I mentioned that the horizon line must outlined and both the buildings and reflection of the buildings must touch the horizon line.

For more examples of this project take, take a look at my Art to Remember Google Folder. Below is the flipped lesson that I presented to my classes. 


  1. Thanks for sharing the video. It makes the process nice and clear. What video program/app did you use?

  2. Are you certain that the line you drew across the page at the start is the "horizon line"?

    1. It's a little tricky. It's what I tell my elementary students. There are somethings that I teach my student in elementary school and in middle school I say... You know that time I told you... well it was kind of the truth but now that you are ready to handle the whole truth, here it is. I use the simple explanation of the horizon line separated the sky and the ground... but in this case the city and the water.
