One-point Perspective

Students in Elissa Donovan’s seventh-grade art class created drawings of the perspective one would have if standing and looking up at surrounding skyscrapers. The approach is called one point perspective, in which the images appeared to be towering over the spectator. “We are learning that perspective is a tool artists use to create an illusion of depth,” said Donovan. “We are building on their concepts of perspective to help create a more 3-D and realistic piece.”
