One-Point Perspective

I love perspective!
I love to do it and I love to teach it.
Back when I was in college I took a full year of classes that were all about perspective.
(That was prior to becoming an art ed major)
This is an example of one of my month long projects. 
So even though I get weird looks when I tell people I have an interior design and architecture emphasis, it pays off when I am teaching perspective.

I love this fourth grade project because it allows for so much creativity.
 I was blown away this year.
These project are mostly done, just a bit of coloring left to do.
Patience is the key here.
Go through each step slowly.
Day 1: Trace squares -- demonstrate how to turn them into cubes.
Day 2: Get creative!
