ART: Teaching One Point Perspective

Ms. Alex Patterson has been teaching her Art students one point perspective. “One 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” (studentstartingguide.com). Ms. Patterson is shown in the picture teaching two of her students about one point perspective one day after school.
