Provided with a lecture, examples and a guided practice, the students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of drawing in 1PT & 2PT perspective by producing a completed drawing, that accurately defines a vanishing point in the portfolio level drawing.
2Pt Perspective – Hours: 20
Students will draw in 2-Point Perspective
Drawing with 1, 2 & 3 Point Perspective is a skill that every art student must understand and be able to demonstrate.
After completion of the lecture and the class exercises, the students will develop a final 2-Point Perspective drawing that shows all the percentages of a greyscale, from 100% white to 100% black, with all of the shapes and lines built up by contrast to a finished drawing of portfolio level.
301 - Draw objects using linear perspective.
302 - Design basic geometric and organic forms showing texture and tone.
307 - Create value with the use of layering.
Career Path: Graphic Designer
101 - Identify career paths within the vocational profession.
102 - List occupational requirements.
103 - Demonstrate research and organizational skills.

Drawing in 2pt Perspective:
Drawing in 2pt perspective gives you a lot more options for structural drawing. 2pt perspective gives you much larger optical view as if you were looking at a full cityscape instead of just one street. Although this seems more difficult, the principles are much the same as 1pt perspective.Background / Overview:In this project the student will use 2pt perspective to design their own restaurant. The final project drawing should be finished to a level that you could present it to a bank or a lender to get the true feeling and design idea of the restaurant.
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
4. Image must show depth in the image - perspective
5. Final drawing needs to completed in colored pencils
1. Full value scale - light to dark shades of color
2. Create interest for the eye
3. Do something that interests you
4. Portfolio Piece
Students must be prepared to make a major commitment. It is our assumption that students entering the program are here to lay a foundation for a career in a design field and will be required to meet rigorous and stringent standards. Strong communication skills, both verbal and written, are required as is the ability to read and analyze. Serious students will find that the program will provide them with an excellent opportunity to develop the skills necessary to succeed in the job market or advance in education.
Year Two, Project Overview:
- Jean-Michel Basquiat emerged from the "Punk" scene in New York as a gritty, street-smart graffiti artist who successfully crossed over from his "downtown" origins to the international art gallery circuit. In a few fast-paced years, Basquiat swiftly rose to become one of the most celebrated, and possibly most commercially exploited American "naif" painters of the widely celebrated Neo-Expressionism art movement.
Project Name: Back Piece Tattoo
The key to creating a great tattoo begins with a visually appealing drawing, so it's essential that you focus on improving your drawing skills and illustration techniques before you even think about designing tattoos or attempting to practice tattooing. Here's how you can get started.
Practice Drawing On Your Own
The first thing you can do to get started is to begin drawing on your own. Keep a sketchbook and a pencil handy to draw in your free time; you don't need anything else to take that initial step. Draw things you see, things you think, and things other people describe. Get a feel for whether you truly enjoy drawing and creating art, especially art for other people. Since you'll be drawing requests most of the time, it's important that you're comfortable creating art that meets the specifications of others.
Using the supplied materials the students will complete the back piece tattoo design... See Examples
