Students learned how to interpret foreground middleground and background using their own landscape drawing and magazine pictures. My students love to look through magazines, so giving them the opportunity to add magazine cutouts to their art really inspired them. They had to use their knowledge of size to place their magazine cutouts in either the foreground (larger images), middleground (medium sized images) or the background (smaller images). This example is from a third grade student.
