When I did recently did two-point perspective, I related the technique
with architecture. After a few basic lessons, the students designed their
own house. We looked at traditional examples of homestyles and some
non-traditional ones, such as Frank Llyod Wright. It worked out okay,
considering over half my students were suspended at the time.
