Grade 8 Linear Drawings

Our Grade 8 Art class has been busy experimenting and learning about one-point linear perspective, both interior and exterior. One-point perspective is the way that objects appear smaller as they get further away and that the parallel lines appear to meet each other at a point in the distance. The point in the distance is either the horizon or the eye level line. The first known picture to make use of linear perspective was created by the Florentine architect Fillipo Brunelleshi (1377-1446).
The class project was to draw a section of the Art room from life. Students used pencil and marker and then they had the choice of adding watercolours or keeping the drawing black and white.
This was a more challenging project, but this class did an amazing job. I see a few future architects in this class!
