I’ve never been a big fan of tempera paints, they often seemed a bit dull to me. But if you team them up with a fat black marker, it makes for a bolder image, no matter what the age of the student.
1. Ask the students to start by drawing a ground line (in pencil) near the bottom.
2. They are to draw a series of rectangle buildings that touch each other. The tops may be flat, angled or round, but there should be a variety. Encourage them to keep things simple.
3. Give each student a permanent black marker to trace all their lines.
4. Distribute paper plates with an assortment of tempera paint colors, including white. This will encourage mixing of lighter colors that won't hide the black marker. Instruct the students to carefully paint in all the parts of their drawing.
