  • 4486275-514350Intro to Art – 1 point perspective<br />From ArtTalk, p. 115: Linear Perspective is one way of using lines to show distance and depth. As parallel lines move away from you, they seem to move closer together toward the horizon line. When you look at the highway ahead of you, the sides of the road appear to move closer together. You don’t worry, though, because you know this is an illusion. The sides of the road ahead of you are actually just as far apart as they are in your present position. Sometimes lines appear to meet at a point on the horizon line called a vanishing point.<br />Make your own 1 Point Perspective and complete the following on a clean sheet of paper your journal:<br />Materials Needed: Your journal, pencil, eraser, and a ruler<br />
    • Use your ruler to create an even horizon line – HIGH on the page.Make a DOT on the horizon line for a VANISHING POINT. To be more creative, place it to the left of the page.Use your RULER to draw a square in the lower right side. Measure and be exact.Draw ORTHOGONALS (diagonal lines that only meet at the vanishing point) from each corner of the box to the VANISHING POINT.Use your RULER to draw the horizontal line for the end of your box.Use your RULER to draw the vertical line for the side of your box. It should meet the end of the horizontal you just drew AND should be parallel with the left side of your paper. ERASE the ends of the ORTHAGONALS.Repeat the same process and draw another box form on the right side.Be creative and place a box behind the horizon line. (Really this box is just drawn on the horizon line, but it appears to be in the background behind a hill.)Stack the forms.
    You MUST draw AT LEAST 4 boxes to complete this assignment. Outline in pen and color with colored pencil.<br />
