One Point Perspective

Image result for soraya reichman

“…a mathematical system for representing three-dimensional objects and space on a two-dimensional surface by means of intersecting lines that is drawn vertically and horizontally and that radiate from one point on a horizon line…”

One point perspective is a drawing method that shows how things appear to get smaller as they get further away, converging towards a single ‘vanishing point’ on the horizon line. It is a way of drawing objects upon a flat piece of paper (or other drawing surface) so that they look three-dimensional and realistic.

Students are now making their own composition using the techniques to create One Point Perspective.

NPH Giving Tree

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) is an international organization

that takes in abandoned and orphaned children, providing a home and education. Here in

Honduras, the NPH organization provides for over 500 children in at large ranch near La Venta

and home in Tegucigalpa for severely handicapped children. While many children at the ranch

have aunts, uncles, or grandparents that come to visit them and can provide some Christmas

gifts, some children at a ranch have no family to visit. It is these children, whom we would like

to provide for this Christmas. In the main office, a NPH Giving Tree will be set up. If you wish to

participate, choose a paper tree that has a child’s information about his/her size for shoes and

socks. Purchase the new items and return them, unwrapped, to Mrs. Agurcia’s Room (Rm. 7) by

Wednesday, December 7th, with the tree tag taped to it. Thank you for giving this Christmas!
