Visual Arts: Perspective

This unit in visual arts class, students have been inquiring into perspective in visual arts, which is a key concept in the unit they are working on in their homeroom.

They will be assessed on the PYP visual arts learning outcomes responding (3.4): Reflect on their own and other’s creative processes to inform their thinking and creating (phase 2 ): identify, plan and make specific choices of materials, tools, and processes.

Students began by learning about drawing 3-D buildings and 3-D letters using a variety of YouTube videos and tutorials from Mr. Luis. Then, they inquired into one-point perspective, looked at examples of artwork with one-point perspective, and explored in their process portfolios. Finally, students attempted two-point perspective, which was very challenging and difficult to visually comprehend.

Currently, students are using one or more of the perspective techniques they learned to create a final artwork. They are using the design cycle to investigate perspective, plan their perspective drawing, evaluate by getting feedback, and finally create. Students will use their choice of materials to create their perspective artwork.
