2 Point Perspective Lesson “Castles”

Lesson Plan in Curriculum Engine Enduring Idea: Place Critical Question(s): Why did the Renaissance artists want to draw so the places in their art work looked 3 Dimensional? How else can we draw places? Objective(s): Visual Arts: Students will gain an understanding of 2 point perspective and line direction. Math: Students will gain an understanding of line direction - parallel, perpendicular, oblique, horizontal, vertical. Language Arts: Students will gain an understanding of how to tell a picture story using 2 point perspective. Vocabulary: Perspective, parallel, perpendicular, oblique, diagonal, moat, crenelations, horizontal, vertical, Lesson: Show and discuss 2 Point Perspective PPT Project: Students will create a “Castle" 2 point perspective drawing. Project directions are at the end of the PPT. Materials: Paper, pencils, scissors, rulers, colored pencils Teacher Preparation: Create and modify “ 2 Point Perspective PPT to include specific Math and LA standards. Create step by step examples of project process.

Enduring Idea: Place How Renaissance artists created a drawing technique to show a 3 Dimensional place or space on a 2 Dimensional surface

RENAISSANCE means “Re – Birth” REBIRTH OF CLASSICAL ART GREEK AND ROMAN ART

Square & Rectangle Critical Question: sphere Why did the Renaissance artists want to draw so the subjects of their art work looked Cone 3 Dimensional? Pyramid

PERSPECTIVE

“PERSPECTIVE” VOCABULARY Horizon Line – Horizontal Line Direction Vanishing point Diagonal/Oblique lines go to vanishing point. All vertical lines do not deviate from a vertical line direction. Parallel lines are equidistant. Perpendicular lines are at a 90 degree angle.

Horizon Line Where the sky and Sky land or sea appear to meet. Land Seaoror. Sea Land

Vanishing Point Vanishing point – where horizontal lines become The point on the horizon line diagonal/oblique and converge or meet. where all horizontal lines converge.

Vertical lines do not change direction Vanishing point The point on the horizon line where all horizontal lines converge. Vertical Lines are parallel lines.

WHERE IS THE VANISHING POINT IN THIS PICTU

Where is the vanishing point in this picture?

How many vanishing points are in this picture Where are they? .

2 Point PERSPECTIVE ART PROJECT “Castles”

Moats

Crenelations

1. Draw a horizontal Horizon Line. 2. Draw 2 vanishing points on the line.

Draw a vertical line which is perpendicular to the Horizon Line.

Draw oblique/diagonal lines from the top and bottom of the vertical line to the vanishing points.

Draw two vertical lines perpendicular To the Horizon Line.

1. Draw two horizontal lines parallel to the Horizon line. 2. Draw 2 vertical lines perpendicular to the Horizon Line.

Remove lines and add the moat.

Add crenellations (teeth) at the top.

Add details – People, horses, Dragons, etc.
