Atmospheric Perspective


Third Grade Atmospheric Perspective Landscapes

Third graders learned about using value (the lightness and darkness of a color) to create the illusion of depth in artwork.  This is called atmospheric perspective.  We began by creating value scales using tints (adding the color to white), shades (adding black to the color) and tones (adding grey to the color).  Then we examined several examples of atmospheric perspective in photographs and paintings.  Students created several tints, shades and tones pages and finally assembled them to create these beautiful landscapes.
