Russian Buildings

Architecture drawing is a really fun area to explore with children. I've seen many students that have little or no interest in drawing people make the most amazing drawings of buildings.
1. I printed 1/4" graph lines on large format 11" x 17" paper, but you could go to Free Online Graph Paper and print your own. Show the students examples of Russian architecture. Demonstrate how to draw lots of rectangles with "ice cream top" buildings to imitate their look.
2. Distribute watercolor paints and have the students paint their shapes with bright colors.
3. When the paint is dry, give each student a gold paint marker and have them trace all the pencil lines for an extra fancy look.
