Before we left for Winter Break, students learned about the concept of perspective and spent some time in the hallways to see that concept in action. 7th grade students used 1-point perspective, while 8th graders used 2-point. It was neat to see the variance in outcomes based on where students decided to sit out in the hall. You can see the full gallery here.
In addition to seeing how space can be shown using perspective, 7th grade students created some space-like images with a little help from my friend and fellow art teacher,Ian Sands. If you are interested in making images like those shown below, check out the video Mr. Sands created that goes through the process.
Students also had a chance to take their perspective drawings skills and adapt them to a new situation where they created a 3D name like the examples below.
Teaching Visual Arts since 2004 and making images since picking up a crayon.
