In 8th grade art, we have been learning how to use 1 point perspective. Students learned that perspective helps us to make things look 3D and realistic. 1 point perspective uses a horizon line with one vanishing point to draw 3D forms on a flat surface. Each student chose a word that had some kind of meaning to them and made it 3D by using 1 point perspective. Then each student added creative color to the letters and background. Enjoy the slideshow below!
8th graders have created some very interesting artwork using variation on a piece of copper. They created a design with 5 or 6 parts and then filled those parts with different lines and patterns. Each student pressed their design into the metal, covered it with ink, then rubbed it off to keep the ink in the crevices. Then students extended their patterns with color onto a paper border. Enjoy their creative work!
