Why Lesson Planet?
Take a trip down Pearblossom Highway with this lesson about comparing and contrasting. Using David Hockney's Pearblossom Hwy and another image of the same highway (photograph or other image), learners compare and contrast the two artworks showing the same image. They write a descriptive composition based on the images, recognize one-point perspective in artwork, then apply this perspective in a drawing they create. This lesson includes additional extension activities.
