An art teacher for years, I've found that these two worksheets are essential to help students understand the basics of how backgrounds are constructed. Each year I find that incoming students lack the ability to create depth, and their drawn and painted work usually end up as a floating objects on a blank background. I constructed these worksheets to help solve this very problem. One is dedicated to interiors while the other tackles outside scenes. They are laid out in a deliberate fashion, going from simple concepts to more advanced ones. Each drawn cell is accompanied with an explanation (while introducing art vocabulary) that exhibits how these illusions of space work. The concept of foreground, middle ground, and background are all illustrated as well as working in various orientations such as vertical, horizontal, square, and panoramic. I trust your students will find these as beneficial and enlightening as mine do.
Enjoy! (Bo, The Art Guru)
