It WORKED! Results were decent, the concept was taught, and I threw in a little contrast and value along the way.
Magritte was a Belgian Surrealist painter, meaning he painted dreamscapes/non-existent worlds. He tended to combine ordinary objects in unusual ways that many think are just plain weird. In my opinion, Magritte was a class act as far as Surrealists go. Anyway, on with the Art!
We started out using basic one point perspective to create the room, and sketched an organic, oversized object in the center. To emphasize organic vs. geometric, we used colored pencil for the background and chalk for our object ('cause who doesn't love chalk?). For their window with a view, it was the sky's the limit-anything goes as long as it's school appropriate.
I personally love the pile of shoe laces coming through the window (and was PC Artist of the Week).

I usually hate spiders, but I'll make an exception for this one.
It just might be a keeper. Just have to work on our window a little more next year.
