Hello all high school teachers,
Part of the curriculum is the dreaded perspective proficiency--one and two point. I've been putting off and putting off this lesson. I've only taught perspective to 7th grade--seemed to go alright but they didn't love it. I teach an art 1 class which has several mediochre and a few advanced students. They're drawing Chinese food boxes now to learn form--they don't have the patience to look, draw the form, then work on value and shading. They're not precise nor do show, except a few, that they'd like to. I am planning that they will learn form then use these boxes as a visual foundation or structure, research houses from other cultures, and design a new home where they would want to live, influenced by their research. But how do I teach perspective so it's interesting, so they understand?
Thanks to all of you who recommended kilns.
