I think that 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 that involves both art and science. I found this interesting tutorial and with 7th grade students and we have been inspired by this unusual point of view. It is as you were in the middle of a big city, in a crossroads, looking at the sky. The vanishing point is in the middle of the sky.
To make this drawing we drew the building with pencils and markers and then we painted the sky with watercolors. Our drawing is more simple than the one in the tutorial and we used rulers, but the results are amazing!

Wow, what an amazing website! I’ve just started teaching art in a middle school in the UK. I have looked at lots of your stuff and have found it very inspiring! Thank you so much!
Hi, I’m glad to inspire you in your job… teaching art is the greatest job in the world! 😉
Best Job at all? That does not even make sense!! FIX YOUR GRAMMAR
Thanks for your comment Mallory, I need help to fix my mistakes and I appreciate any suggestion. Please, If you see my grammatical errors could you help me to fix them? As is obvious, I’m not mother tongue and I often need help with the translation. As you see, I wrote “the greatest job in the world”, is it better?
Thank you for being so nice. Most people get mad when i fix grammar mistakes. It just triggered me. And yes, what you wrote it better.
Thanks Mallory, I appreciate your honesty 🙂
Wow Mallory, instead of using capital letters, which by the way needs to end with an exclamation mark, there are other ways to tell people of a mistake they made. For example, when you wrote in your reply, “what you wrote it better,” I could say something like, “did you mean to type the word is instead of it?”
