Students learn the basic concept of three point perspective while creating a maze. This project works for 7th through 12th grade beginning art. The basic knowledge is presented and students can create their mazes on a basic level or go way beyond by adding a second maze, adding a floating pool, adding holes in the sides of the maze walls, etc, I had my students start by throwing paint on a large poster or mat board scrap. Any media will do. Let it dry and draw you maze on top of the painted paper. (you could make marbleized paper and use it as your base paper) Once you have your maze drawn in pencil and then in black marker the student will take acrylic or house paint and paint out the background, leaving all of the creative colors inside the maze. Learning how to hold a brush and how to load a brush with the correct thickness of paint to create straight edges is another perk of this lesson. Light washes of color or layers of colored pencil can be applied to say all of the south walls. The goal is to separate the inside from the outside and have it an easy read for the viewer.
Once you get the basic construction as shown on the power point the rest is determined by your imagination. I do this process with the students step by step and then loop the power point so it could be playing during the class to help students if they get stuck.
