In this lesson you will learn the vocabulary and concepts of Perspective and begin to understand firsthand some of the techniques artists use to create Perspective. First we will explore the science of Linear and Atmospheric Perspective in a class Keynote presentation and discuss how artist have used their knowledge of Perspective in their paintings. We will then return to our drawing area and attempt to draw a series of geometric objects in one and two point perspective. Once this drawing is accomplished we will also attempt to draw these shapes from a different eye level.
