Re: 7th grade perspective

I am at the end of a long hallway. It always amazes my middle school students when, after we review 1 pt. perspective, I take them in the hallway and we draw what we see. Why they are amazed that what we do in the classroom actually works in the hallway is beyond me - it's like they think what we do in the classroom doesn't pertain to real life at all! *L* I just tell them that I like to trick them that way. :-)

  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.
