I took the idea for this lesson from Deep Space Sparkle.

I'm finally having a chance to get caught up on some of our art projects for this summer's class. One of our summer art classes was creating some mid-evil castles. I don't know of any child that doesn't love the magical, fairy tale dream land. They did a great job creating these, and it would have been nice to have a bit more time to put in backgrounds. I probably should have given one more class period to painting backgrounds. Live and learn I guess. Some of the things they learned about was: Architecture, pattern and texture. I still love how one lesson can vary so much from the Kindergartener up to the 5th grader.
