In this introductory drawing class, middle school students will learn how to draw a cityscape using One Point Perspective. This is a drawing technique that shows how objects appear to be smaller as they are farther away converging toward a single vanishing point on the horizon line. This method of drawing was discovered during the Italian Renaissance by architect, Filippo Brunelleschi, and utilized by Leonardo da Vinci as well as many other artists. Students will also learn simple methods of crosshatching to create shading and visual depth.
