2 Point Perspective Boxes

- Rulers
- Magazines
- 2 12"x18" Drawing Paper
- Colored Pencils/ Markers/ Crayons
- Glue
- 3DO's (optional)
After a discussion and lesson on perspective, students were taught how to draw in 2 point perspective. Their requirement was to draw 10 boxes, 5 with windows, and of those 5, have 2 smaller boxes inside. They were colored in either a warm or cool color scheme, and the background was collaged in the opposite color scheme. They were mounted on with 3DO's for more of a three dimensional effect. The students who originally drew their boxes so that they were all connected had an easier time figuring out where to place them onto their background paper (because they were all connected!)

As much as I observe students struggling with rulers, this was surprisingly one of the more successful lessons I've taught!
