Keys to the City, Diebenkorn Cityscape Studies

"Draw this..."
A cityscape

"Don't worry about coloring it in, you will paint it later."

After the cityscapes were all drafted, we looked at Diebenkorn's Cityscape I, 1963 and talked about the colors used -- the children named the colors they saw. I talked about how I thought it looked more like farmland or perhaps a city with a great park in the middle of it, like Central Park in New York City.

Then...the paint is applied to the sketches.
