Perspective Drawing
Traditional 1/3

PERSPECTIVE 1 Point:

First Year Students:

1PT Perspective Drawing
This lesson teaches the basics of drawing forms in one-point perspective. Students can then transform their drawings into a city scene. This lesson will be paired later on in the program with “Two- Point Perspective" which covers much of the same content but this teaches two-point perspective techniques.

 

Fantasy Landscape - city, landscape, jungle - whatever
Students will take the knowledge of one point perspective and apply it to there own imaginative creation. This drawing should be developed as far as they can take it by completing it with colored pencils...this should be a nice portfolio piece.

Take some time to research you objects and what the look like...

1. Horizontal Layout with the supplied paper
2. Image must show some form of structure-  (building, trees, mountains, etc)
3.  Need to be able to identify your horizon line

Project Overview:

I'm thinking about a good scare to keep our hearts pumping. So how about a "Scary Portrait" to put a little fright in us. Keep in mind all the things you've learned about what makes a good portrait. Just because your subject might possibly be a member of the undead does not mean they deserve less than your best!

Experimental Project:
Project Name: Pen & Ink Tree/Flower

Project Overview: When drawn with knowledge, a great ink drawing carries a certain evocative power that stems from the cleanliness of the finished work. However, that same cleanliness can also leave you vulnerable because high contrast line drawings give you nowhere to hide. Every line communicates knowledge and power or timidity and uncertainty. It’s a fine line between one and the other, no pun intended. Here are some of my techniques for making ink drawing more approachable and less nerve-racking.

Using the supplied materials the students will complete the pen & ink assignment... See Examples
