1-Point Linear Perspective



Students were introduced to perspective techniques through a study of Raphael's "School of Athens", by watching the video "Masters of Illusion", and by engaging in an interactive "Drawing in One-Point Perspective" website created by artist and art teacher, Harold Olejarz.

We also looked at trompe l'oeil images and marveled at the anamorphic pavement drawings by contemporary artist, Julian Beever.

After reviewing the basic mathematical principles involved in one-point perspective and practicing other techniques that help to create the illusion of depth (atmospheric perspective, overlapping, relative size, placement on the picture plane, etc.) students got to work on a one-point perspective project.




Here are a few examples (from over the years) of students' imaginary "room drawings." (Their drawing are "straight"--my photos aren't always as straight!)
