One point perspective is a useful skill for students to be able to understand and use in their own artwork. When students understand the basics of perspective, they will be able to apply it to their drawings. Students only need paper, pencils, and rulers to draw using one point perspective.
This short PowerPoint demonstrates to students how to use one point perspective in order to draw a 3-D box above the horizon line. It begins with drawing a horizon line, adding a vanishing point, and then the tutorial demonstrates how to draw a box with a few follow-along steps.
