A Room With A View - Grade 2

This is a one-class drawing lesson for elementary students. The theme is to draw a picture of a room with a view to the outside of the building as well as a view into the mind of the artist. The objects in the room should be representative of interests, hobbies, favorite things, etc. This lesson is also a great opportunity to integrate perspective, pattern, background, foreground, texture and line. Matisse's "Red Room" and Van Gogh's "Bedroom at Arles" would be good references to show to the students to get them thinking about perspective and patterns.

Here is my example drawing:
