Lesson Plan: Teaching one point perspective

Power point: 1 point perspective

What is one-point perspective?

The student art guide defines it asOne point perspective is a drawing method that shows how things appear to get smaller as they get further away, converging towards a single ‘vanishing point‘ on the horizon line. It is a way of drawing objects upon a flat piece of paper (or other drawing surface) so that they look three-dimensional and realistic.”
