### Objectives:

** Develop visual understanding of one and two point perspective.**

** Develop technical skills to create one and two point perspective.**

### Materials:

Sketchbook HB Pencil Eraser Ruler

### Considerations:

**One-Point Perspective**

One-Point Perspective = Linear Perspective – Everything (All lines) go to one point: **the vanishing point**.

The choice of where to put the horizon is unlimited; it does not have to be centered.

Place one point on the horizon, all lines then go to this point.

**Two-Point Perspective**

Two–Point Perspective – uses **2 vanishing points on the horizon**.

Looks more natural then 1-point perspective.

Used to show objects from the side, enabling the viewer to see two sides.

### Development:

**In your sketchbook, using pencil, complete the following exercises:**

(refer to the handout given in class as a guide, or click here to view a PDF of the handout: perspective handout)

**One-point Perspective**

Part 1.Draw a cube above the horizon line.

Part 2.Draw a cube below the horizon line.

Part 3.Draw a cube that overlaps the horizon line.

Part 4.Using block lettering, draw your name, each letter should use the same vantage point.

Part 5.Draw a cityscape that includes a road with buildings lining each side.

**Two-point Perspective**

Part 6.Draw a cube above the horizon line.

Part 7.Draw a cube below the horizon line.

Part 8.Draw a cube that overlaps the horizon line.

Part 9.Using block lettering, draw your first initial, (if you want to challenge your self, try drawing your whole first name using two-point).

Part 10.Draw a building with windows, a staircase, and a sidewalk.
