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)

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.
