  • 2.
    • Equipment needed:
    • White drawing paper
    • #2 pencils
    • Hand pencil sharpeners
    • 12” rulers
    • Colored pencils
    • Overhead projector
    • Optional electric pencil sharpener

  • 3.  
  • 4. On graph paper draw at least four rectangles, one near each corner. The gray boxes show you where they should be placed.
  • 5. Place your tiny vanishing point in the center of the paper. Then use a ruler to draw a line from the 3 inside & bottom corners of the box to the vanishing point.
  • 6. Here are some color designs Created by just making boxes in One-Point Perspective
  • 7.  
  • 8.  
  • 9. Use simple block letters now instead of just rectangles.
  • 10.
    • Rounded letters are just a little harder to do in one point perspective because you don’t have the perfect block corners.
    • You have to draw two lines instead of one a little bit away from the center of the curves.
  • 11.
    • Choose a positive word that means something to you.
    • TRUTH, STRONG, LOYAL, PEACE, TRUST, and BRAVE are some good positive words.
    • Carefully space and letter the word in all caps.
    • Choose your vanishing point.
    • Construct your lines starting with the ones closest to your vanishing point.
    • Remember, you have lots more corners now and don’t forget the spaces inside the letters.
    • Make sure you don’t draw lines that you wouldn’t see.
    • The letters are not see through so we shouldn’t see a lot of extra lines.
  • 12. Whoops! Make sure you spell your words correctly! This exhibit was from 6 th -8 th graders at Thoreau Elementary in Milwaukee, WI March 2004
  • 13. Here are some more student samples.
  • 14. These were done in a summer program at the University of WI-Milwaukee in August of 2004
  • 15.
    • These students created a specific depth to their lettering
    • That is more difficult because you must create parallel lines.
  • 16. Have fun doing your own lettering!
