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" (also available on YouTube), and by engaging in an interactive "Drawing in One-Point Perspective" website created by artist and art teacher, Harold Olejarz.

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' 1-point perspective drawings.
Their drawings are "straight"--my photos aren't always as straight!

Commissions earned through my affiliation with select merchants help to offset my webhosting costs, which keeps the lesson plans on the Art-Rageous site free and available for teachers, homeschoolers, crafters, and more.

Thank you!
