Objectives for 1pt Perspective drawing
- The students will draw a 1 point perspective through lecture, power point and the completion of 2 drawing projects. Students will use their knowledge of one point perspective to draw more complex drawings in later units.
- Students will draw 1 point perspective at different locations that will reflect different viewing areas.
- Students will use critical thinking skills in the drawing assignments and through completion of the projects will show problem solving skills that will lead them to the outcome of a finished drawing.

Perspective Definitions to “KNOW”
- Perspective: creating the illusion of depth on a flat surface
- One-Point Perspective: a way to show 3-D objects on a flat surface using one vanishing point
- Two-Point Perspective: a way to show 3-D objects on a flat surface using two vanishing points
- Aerial Perspective: using color and value to create the illusion of depth. Closer objects are brighter and true colors; farther objects are darker and more dull.
- Depth: the illusion of 3-D space on a 2-D surface
- Proportion: principle of art; describes the size relationship between objects
- Overlap: placement of objects on top of each other to create depth
- Horizon line: eye level; shows where the sky and ground come together or meet
- Vanishing point: the spot on the horizon line where parallel lines appear to converge and vanish
- Line: element of art; the path of a traveling point in space
- Orthogonal line: lines drawn to the vanishing point
- Vertical line: lines that travel in an up and down direction
- Horizontal line: lines that travel in a side to side direction
- Parallel line: lines that never touch or cross paths
- Space: element of art that describes the area in or around an object
- Negative space: the area around an object
- Positive space: the area within an object
