Architectural House Drawings

Every quarter in 7th grade art, we attempt an architecture drawing project. Last quarter, it was castle design. This quarter we went back to the old favorite of ornate, Victorian style homes. Using Deep Space Sparkle's Architecture Made Easy template drawing directions, we cruised through the beginning part of this work (I was gone the day the students started this and I came back to amazing results!).

Color was added with a pastel chalk graded background, and a water-based marker bleeding technique was used for inside the house. Colored Sharpies added a punch in areas too small for the bleeding technique.


  1. These are beautiful! I want to live on that street!

  2. These are stunning!! I love the use of mixed media to color them- your kids did a fabulous job!

  3. What detailed architecture drawings! Can you explain what you mean by marker bleeding technique?
