Day 1:

INTRODUCTION to 1 Point LINEAR PERSPECTIVE

1-Point TECHNIQUE WORKSHEET #1:

a. Follow along with Mrs. Eller as she demonstrates squares and rectangles.


Day 2 + 3:

Here is another version of 1 point perspective with some irregular and more complex shapes. You can try to do it on your own or you can follow along with this youtube video if you get stuck! Also, it may help you to see another artist’s perspective and techniques for linear perspective.

Day 4:

Choosing the pathway that best suits your learning needs!

Were the above tasks too easy, just right, or did you find them extremely challenging? These questions can help guide you towards the path that is going to best for you to follow.

PATH #1: IF you found TECHNIQUE WORKSHEETS #1-3 to be difficult; meaning, you struggled to complete all worksheets within 2-3 classes and you sought out constant assistance from the teacher, your peers, and/or tutorial videos, then you will continue with…

1-Point Linear Perspective TECHNIQUE WORKSHEETS #4-6. Then you will begin choosing your 1-Point Linear Perspective Studio Project.


PATH #2: IF you found TECHNIQUE WORKSHEET #1-3 to be just right or easy; meaning, you completed all worksheets within 2-3 classes and you sought out none to minimal assistance from the teacher, your peers, and/or tutorial videos, then you will move to…

2-Point Linear Perspective WORKSHEETS #1 and #2.

IF you found 2-Point Linear Perspective WORKSHEETS #1 and #2 to be difficult; meaning, you struggled to complete all worksheets within 1-2 classes and you sought out some or constant assistance from the teacher, your peers, and/or tutorial videos, then you will continue with…

2-Point Linear Perspective TECHNIQUE WORKSHEETS #3-5. Then you will begin choosing your 2-Point Linear Perspective Studio Project.


PATH #3: IF you found 2-Point Linear Perspective TECHNIQUE WORKSHEETS #1 and #2 to be easy; meaning, you completed all worksheets quickly within 1-2 classes and you sought out none or minimal assistance from the teacher, your peers, and/or tutorial videos, then you will move to…

3-Point Linear Perspective WORKSHEETS #1 and #2. Then you will begin choosing your studio project.


STUDIO PROJECT OPTIONS:

– click on the titles or images to get more details on the assignment.

Planning/Sketches:

  1. All STUDIO PROJECT OPTIONS BELOW REQUIRE 3-4 THUMBNAIL SKETCHES (very small, quick idea sketches) and then choose 1 to become your…
  2. 1 FINAL SKETCH (1/2 – 1 page more developed drawing, mapping out light source, environment, and more details).

OPTION A:

Linear Perspective: 3-D Maze

3dmaze2pointperspective

(Lesson plan created by your peer, Emily!)

Mastery Objective(s): The student will…

  1. demonstrate his/her understanding of linear perspective by applying either one, two, or three-point in a realistic or surrealistic drawing of a three-dimensional maze.

Medium: open medium, except graphite.   ***If you want to use graphite, use black or grey prismacolor colored pencil instead.

Creative Constraints:

  1. paper is given to you in a specific size
  2. must use 80% of your paper
  3. needs to have a definitive light source
  4. must possess a sense of mystery created by shadows or other dark areas, silhouettes, etc. (Mystery can also be created by your combinations of objects (e.g. objects that might not normally go together.) OR
  5. must possess a sense of humor created by surrealistic subject matter.

OPTION B:

Linear Perspective: TREE HOUSE

tree house of swirling vines

Mastery Objective(s): The student will…

  1. demonstrate his/her understanding of linear perspective by applying either one, two, or three-point in an artwork featuring a uniquely, innovative tree house representing his/herself or family.

Media: open media (your choice), except NO GRAPHITE! IF you want to use GRAPHITE, it MUST be combined and unified with another medium.

Creative Constraints:

  1. paper is given to you in a specific size
  2. must use 80% of your paper
  3. needs to have a definitive light source
  4. Subject Matter: a tree house that represents you or your family!
  • when planning your treehouse think about the PERSPECTIVE and POINT-OF-VIEW of the viewer (what does that view point ‘say’ about you and your family or how does it make the viewer feel?)
  • think about the DESIGN of the tree and the house when relating it to you or your family. example: color, thickness/thinness of trunk and branches, materials – wood, stone… MUST HAVE The Principle of Design: UNITY.
  • be specific about WHERE your tree and house are! What does the time of day and environment tell your viewer about you or your family? What are these things supporting in your work?

OPTION C:

Linear Perspective: INTERIOR

Mastery Objective(s): The student will…

  1. demonstrate his/her understanding of linear perspective by applying either one, two, or three-point in an artwork featuring an interior view of a space.

OPTION D:

Linear Perspective: EXTERIOR

surrealistic one poitn exterior

Mastery Objective(s): The student will…

  1. demonstrate his/her understanding of linear perspective by applying either one, two, or three-point in an artwork featuring an exterior view of a space.

OTHER OPTION:

(ONLY for students I spoke to individually)

LP low relief

Mastery Objective(s): The student will…

  1. demonstrate his/her understanding of linear perspective by creating a low-relief, mixed-media sculpture of a bird’s eye view cityscape with 2-dimensional designs, a specific color scheme, and light source.
