RE: 7th grade perspective


Date: Sun Aug 10 2003 - 12:04:24 PDT

Mike, My 7th and 8th graders love Harold's 1 pt. perspective tutorial and are very successful at it. They go through his tutorial with paper, ruler and pencil. After going through the tutorial I put them in pairs and each pair teaches the class how to do other objects in the room, such as book cases, in-door swimming pools, you name it, they've tried it. As they make mistakes, others in the room help teach each other. My 5th grade son has drawn successful drawings using 1 and 2 point perspective. Go for it.

        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.
