For our last class of the year, my Tuesday afternoon Elementary students drew Snowmen and learned about perspective. These are my youngest students and this was totally new vocabulary for some of them.
They learned about one-point perspective and vanishing points:
- A drawing uses a one-point perspective when it contains one vanishing point which is on the horizon line – at the artist eye level.
- Vanishing point: the point at which something that has been growing smaller disappears altogether.
They did a great job and created some fun art for their families:
Crossing our fingers for some real snow for Christmas.
