Perspective can often be a frustrating idea for beginners, but this powerpoint breaks it down into simple steps that anyone can learn! This lesson can be used in an art class, integrated in core subjects, or just for fun (kids LOVE learning how to draw this way). This lesson is the first in a series of perspective lessons, so stay tuned.
This step-by-step tutorial is a great introduction to a perspective drawing unit or as an art integration element in a math unit. Following along with the attached worksheets, students learn basic perspective concepts and practice drawing shapes in both one and two point perspective. The lesson concludes with two review slides to assess comprehension, questions (listed below) can be completed orally or written down individually.
1. What is perspective?
2. What is depth?
3. What is the vanishing point?
4. What is the horizon line?
5. What is the difference between one-point and two-point perspective?
6. Explain the steps that you would follow in order to draw a box in one-point perspective?
7. Explain the steps that you would follow in order to draw a box in two-point perspective?
8. What is difference about drawing a box at eye level vs. a box above you?
9. Explain why perspective helps to make drawings more realistic.
