Perspective is the appearance to the eye of objects in respect to their relative distance and positions. This year we will be working with all our classes to include perspective in our drawings. Perspective gives our drawings a 3-D (three dimensional) appearance. We will discuss what makes a picture look 3-D. The farther away something is, the smaller it appears and has less detail. It also appears nearer the top of the page. Imagine yourself standing on the side of a road, a car is coming toward you from a long distance away. As the car gets nearer, it looks bigger and more colorful. Closer objects will be larger, with more detail, and closer to the bottom of the page. Each of the six grades have a lesson on perspective. The first and second grades use pre-cut, colored shapes. The third, fourth, fifth and sixth grades use stencils in their projects. For directions for each grade, look for “Perspective” the Grade Projects Galleries in the sidebar.
