Re: 7th grade perspective

I always to one point with 7th grade. In fact that is what I start with! THEY love it. It is like magic to them and they get hooked on art right away.
I start with simple boxes, then "notched" boxes (names) and then go into creating a scene. Once they know the process it is up to them to get creative. I usually do a colored pencil lesson with some of the kids that are excelling at one-point so they can work on two new skills. Always works for me.

  I want to try doing a 1point perspective room this year with 7th grade. I know Harold Olejarz has done this but I"m wondering if anyone else has and how successful it has been.
