City and Country Perspective

In this drawing studio, little artist learned about one-point perspective and two-point perspective. Perspective,  in drawing,  is an approximate representation on a flat surface of our paper of an image as the eye sees it. Little artists drew a one-point city street perspective, which has one single vanishing point, drawn directly on the horizon line.

Then little artists drew a two-point country perspective which had two vanishing points drawn on the horizon line so the object rotated, making one side of the country barn recedes towards one vanishing point, the other side of the barn recede towards the opposite vanishing point.

Through both of these perspective studios little artists learned more about the term horizon line and vanishing point and how objects appear smaller as they are closer to the vanishing point; clouds, people, cars, farm animals, buildings and trees. Little artists also learned more about how to use the edge of a ruler to line up the vanishing points to correctly depict an the objects size.

The end result City and Country perfection! See you at the Next Studio!
