2 point perspective
« on: September 10, 2017, 08:49:26 PM »
Using this course as an art class for my 6th grader who is homeschooled.  Would love positive feedback and helpful critique to aid in her growth and assist with my "grading"

It's accurate enough, and serves well to demonstrate an understanding of 2-point perspective, but are you asking us to mark your Student's homework? Surely that's down to you as a tutor?

No, just looking for input to aid me as I grade her.  :) I also think it's good for her to get an outsiders unbiased view of her work.

Well, it is very well done.  I give her an A!  :)  Next, she can try a maze.  Seriously, it is good.  But, of course, she can do nothing but get better with practice.  It is very wise to seek counsel.  Keep up the good work, both of you.

From a parent that home school all three of my children all the way though high school and beyond. Her grade would be a hug and I love your drawing.  As for progress. if you cannot see any. maybe she does not need any. or you need a different instructor. In the interest of you doing research in order to instruct. and specifically in regard to 2 point perspective adding my personal opinion of what art instruction even is meant to teach. Okay. She is in 6th grade. this indicates her ability with perspective. perspective is a pretty basic like can you write the letters of the alphabet type skill. I think she gets it. in a drawing things need to look like they travel off in the distance. great, lovely job move on. And if she didn't get it or future efforts require some refinement of the concept. then revisit it. Now maybe show her how perspective applies to a ball. or a forest. or whatever else she works on. just keep returning to the issue of perspective and point out how it applies to everything she creates. it is one of the biggest failing so any artist or attempt at art. Trees get smaller as they get further away. and they do so in a graduated manner. Also perspective. show her one point and three point as well as atmospheric perspective. And then observe and guide her in the application of all of them as required. How does perspective play into the entire effort of creating a drawing. that is what is to be learned here. and she will not learn that with a ruler, horizon line and two points. She could in fact begin to include atmospheric perspective in these sort of attempts. that is the tone of the objects gets lighter with distant. less sharp they reduce in detail. incomplete lines etc. Not only do the buildings get smaller. but the lines that outline them could get thinner. just some ideas of how to expand overall and into a more complete teaching of perspective.
