Now part of an entire unit! Entire Art Unit: Surrealism in Perspective (7th - 9th)
Once students have been introduced to the concept of drawing in perspective,
they can begin to put their skills into practice with TheColorThief's collection of Perspective Practice lessons.
This step-by-step tutorial walks students through the process of drawing a bedroom in one point perspective, from the creation of the room itself to the actual furniture and details.
Students follow along with the attached worksheets as they learn to apply their previously-learned skills in order to draw a room, window, dresser, and bed. The presentation is clear and easy to understand, with colors hi-lighting marks that need to be made and can be adjusted by the teacher if to fit your specific needs. The lesson concludes with review slides to assess comprehension, questions can be completed orally or answered as an exit ticket.
When I teach perspective in my classroom, this lesson is where most students have their "lightbulb moment." They love seeing their lines come to life, and spend most of their lunch break bragging to their friends. This lesson could be used on it's own, but was designed to be part of a larger unit. Paired with TheColorThief's other perspective lessons, students will be able to go from novice to expert, understanding why, how, and when to use the vanishing point to draw from both imagination and life. Recommended order of lessons:
1. Introduction to Perspective
1. Perspective Practice - Drawing a Landscape (Easy)
2. Perspective Practice - Drawing a Bedroom (Medium)
