Take a picture of one-point and two-points perspective

How many times we look at a landscape in perfect one point perspective, without realizing it? After studying the geometrical rules of this spatial techniques, we realized that we are surrounded by images in one or two points perspective. This way to represent the space is not easy to understand, but with a camera can be easy to comprehend the rules of the perspective: you can identify the … [Read more...]

Buildings in one point perspective

I think teaching how to draw perspective is one of the most difficult topic. Learning the rules of perspective is a difficult task for students, and every year I need to find more effective strategies to teach this topic between art and science. I found this interesting tutorial and with 7th grade students, we have been inspired by this unusual point of view. Is as you were in the middle of a big … [Read more...]

Museum in perspective

Would you like to visit our museum with paintings, photographs and sculptures? Here are the rooms of our art gallery, drawn in one point perspective. This work was carried out by students of the seventh grade, at the end of the course on the representation of space. After studying the rules of central perspective, we drew this museum with pencil and markers, and then we filled it with works of art … [Read more...]

My name in 2-point perspective

In the class of Grade 8, after experiencing the central perspective, we have worked on the perspective with two vanishing points, imagining a huge architecture built with our name. Following the rules of 2-point perspective, we designed the three-dimensional letters and then we colored them with crayons and pencils. To make the words like huge architectures, we have added a horizon, a gradient sky … [Read more...]

Perspective in space!

By analyzing the various ways of representing space, we arrived to the study of perspective. In this collage, with students in the seventh grade, we first drawn a room in central perspective, following the geometrical rules of perspective construction. Then we designed a "space" landscape with colored pencils on a black sheet, to create the fantasy setting of our perspective. The image of the room … [Read more...]
