Now that I've finished my little cut-out children, I want to draw a classroom background scene, on a big piece of card that I have (about 8 times the size of A4). But I don't know how to. I'm not very good at perspectives.

I tried looking on Google images but it only shows the standard, old-fashioned American classroom setting. What I want is a typical modern UK primary school classroom, with desks that are pushed together to make bigger tables, and sets of coloured drawers and toys and work displays and a brightly-coloured theme. It's supposed to be a classroom designed for 5-year-olds, not highschoolers.

Anyone got any tips or ideas?

Being in the US I Googled, UK kindergarten classroom, and it looks like Google gave me all the images you had expected to get and didn't! :lol:

Something like this,

I like this one the most. Proper UK nursery classroom, not the old-fashioned American style with just brown one-person desks arranged neatly and evenly in the middle of the room like an exam room.
