Art is...Perspective ( 8 Printable Worksheets) Open Ended Drawing Exercises
Open Ended, is usually a STUDENT DIRECTED process, where they can draw their feelings, emotions, reactions to the art work in the blanks provided. They can choose to copy the designs, outlines the shapes/forms, or even just draw one aspect. Open ended is not assessed and there is no right or wrong. Just encourage active participation in some form. If you have questions please convo me.
This packet includes 5 pages for 1 point perspective and 1 page for 2 point, 2 pages for Unusual Points of View and one cover sheet.
These are not step-by-step activities, and do not have to be done in any specific order. I tried to find different views of perspective: ways like looking up a tree or the Eiffel Tower or looking through a well or down a crater.

10. Art is...Perspective Cover Sheet
My view on Perspective is hopefully different from what you've seen before: the railroad tracks converging into the distant mountains, or all the city's buildings stretching up into the heavens! I tried to find images of everyday views that show perspective in different ways.
The unusual points of views are looking across landscape in an ellipical way or looking up/down wells. Students can use their own techniques to draw as this project is open ended.

I taught mostly ELL students and made open ended worksheets for art so my students were successful in both Art and English. Anything used that may be copyrighted is being used in accordance with Fair Use for Education. It is to enhance students' understanding of art and their world, using images that we don't have available in the classroom.
