Create… Design a Community

Getting Started…

  • Start at the bottom of the page with a line to create one side of the road
  • Draw the other side of the road, leaving a ‘gap’ for another road to extend
  • Add traffic markings (small rectangles)
  • Attach buildings, trees and vehicles to the side of the road

Create… Design a Community

TIPS…

  • Use basic, simple shapes to ‘build’ human-made objects (eg. squares, triangles, rectangles… for buildings, bridges, etc.)
  • Use organic shapes (eg. bubble shape) for trees and bushes
  • Tuck objects in behind to create OVERLAP
  • Move up the page S-L-O-W-L-Y so you can OVERLAP! (Try to draw the roads bit by bit, not all at once, building and overlapping everything around them as you go!)
  • Add details (lines and shapes for bricks, siding, shingles, flowers, shutters, windows, pathways…)
  • At the top of the page… Background: Will your community continue right off the page, or will you add a HORIZON LINE to show where the sky meets the ground?
