It’s important for students to be able to see how artists use linear perspective to recreate the world accurately on paper. When they understand how others effectively use perspective, their own drawings will improve.
This 5 page article introduces art students to one point, two point, and three point linear perspective drawings. The vocabulary defined in this handout includes: horizon line, vanishing point, orthogonal lines, and transversal lines. Each type of perspective is described and illustrated. There are 6 different pencil drawings created by high school students that illustrate each type of perspective.
Additionally, there is a 10 question worksheet for students to complete that includes drawing and opinion answers. An answer key is included for the fact-based questions. This lesson plan could be used at the beginning of a unit on perspective or could even be left with a substitute so the day isn’t wasted.
