8b Discovering Perspective

Children learn from objects and projected images about eye levels, distance and relative size. They then each produce a linear perspective drawing, which they complete with sketching pencils. In the process children discover light and shade and atmospheric perspective by controlling tonal density.

“Really helpful. Children looked at objects in a new way, saw how they tapered into the distance and found out about vanishing points. They then applied this knowledge to their own drawings using rulers.” Brenda Nelson, Riverina School.
