7th and 8th grade students are working are working on perspective drawing this week. And as usual, I am thinking about how other artists have used it in their work. Instead of visual, check out how this musician used the concept of perspective in their video below. Plus, it is a pretty catchy tune.
Here are just a couple of the hallways that were completed last week. You can see the full gallery of both 7th and 8th grade attempts on our Artsonia gallery!
Students finished up in the hall today with their drawings. 7th grade started uploading their work to Moodle and 8th grade will be doing that part tomorrow.
It is always fun to see how students use the principles of perspective to draw what they see. I think they did a really nice job with this project and I look forward to seeing what the 7th grade students animate in their hall when we get started with that project!
Students continue to work in the hallways this week as they draw from observation. I am excited that some are selecting new views of the hall, never before tried. Several students in 1st hour are giving a try at the cafetorium, which is proving to be a great space to draw.
Reid also received his plaque and gift card from Artsonia today! Thanks to everyone who voted and helped him win Artist of the Week!
This was a fun way to start Monday and this week should be filled with fun as we also get ready for the 8th grade Lewis and Clark expedition outside on Thursday!
Remember to dress warm that day and be prepared for lots of learning, fun, and hopefully no rain or snow this year!
Students worked on perspective drawing today as we took to the halls to draw from observation.
This is always a fun project because we get to move out of the art room and see concepts that apply to places we would otherwise not pay much attention to observing.
7th grade students are working on 1 point perspective and 8th grade students are using 2 points. Can you see where the vanishing point is in this hallway?
I referred to the video above last week when talking about perspective. I think it does a nice job of clearly illustrating the use of a vanishing point in the various geometric scenarios the lead singer finds herself in when walking through the picture frame. Since some students had no idea what I was talking about, I thought it might be a good idea to post the video here.
Students have been working in the hallway last week to create drawings using the principles of perspective. The results will be posted once they finish sometime next week. To help illustrate the ways perspective drawings work, check out the following student-created videos below.
