Look at our incredible one-point perspective L.S. Lowry art ...
We were inspired by L.S. Lowry #Lowry to explore #perspective and #proportion and the the lives of the industrial North. These Year 6 outcomes (Aged 10 or 11) show talent right here, right now 2021.
You can see more of their incredible work at the bottom of the page. We'd love to hear from you using the comments boxes at the end of the post.
The children started by using vanishing points (one point perspective) to draw 3D shapes and then identified the vanishing points in Lowry's art and lots of other famous paintings like, Le Pont de l'Europe by Gustave Caillebotte.

This is Sahar's study of Le Pont de l'Europe.
We also compared Lowry's art, style and content and use of perspective to Suruga-cho, No. 8 in One Hundred Famous Views of Edo by Utagawa Hiroshige (Ando)
The children were particularly inspired by these two Lowry paintings:
Some children used a limited set of muted colours to reflect Lowry's unique style. Many decided to forget colour altogether as they felt the two tone effect added to the atmosphere in their work. They even designed their own display letters, far more effective than printed letters and gives them complete ownership of their mini-exhibition.
