Foreshortening is a drawing technique used to create the illusion where parts of something or someone appear to come out at the viewer strongly, making those areas seem closest to the viewer, and some parts appearing to recede strongly, making those areas seem the furthest away from the viewer.
Our VIIth and VIIIth graders used this technique to prepare these fun artworks of them falling! Using observational skills – in making detailed soles of their shoes and their imagination – where are you falling, what is your background? – they have created artworks that are super fun and quirky!
This is our art exhibition – “Falling for Foreshortening”
