One-Point Perspective

Art A 

Students teach each other how to apply one-point perspective in order to create block letters utilizing a vanishing point placed on a 
horizon line.  

Lesson Vocabulary

One-point Perspective: 
A form of linear perspective in which all lines appear to meet at a single point on the horizon. 

Horizon Line: 
A level line that represents the viewer's eye level. If an object is below the horizon line you can see the top of it. If the object is above the horizon line, you cannot see its top, you can see its bottom. 

Vanishing Point: 
A point on the horizon line where lines between near an distant  places appear to converge.
