Three Point Perspective

Students have learned to create three point perspective by making interesting compositions. They are applying gradiation to their compositions using water-colors, coloring pencils, or temperas.


Don’t miss The Discovery School annual art exhibit. It will take place Saturday May 20th. Students best art pieces will be on exhibition. Once the General Assembly is finished students may take their work home.

Three point perspectives is a great when you wish to render objects or scenes from an abnormally high or low point of view. The distortions that the third vanishing point brings into your composition often has a very artistic effect and makes even the most simple concept more interesting.

Students have finished sketching their design and will now begin to add color.

Follow precise, multi-step directions.

Have the opportunity to go beyond the immediate lesson and apply artistic creativity, or learn more about M. C. Escher, his art, or the contributions he made to mathematics.

Be able to understand and define the following terms: tessellation, polygon, angle, plane, vertex, and adjacent.

Create a concrete model of a tessellation.

tessellation of a flat surface is the tiling of plane using one or more geometric or non geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps. In math, tessellations can be generalized to higher dimensions and a variety of geometries.

Escher is regarded as the ‘Father’ of modern tessellations so. He is famous for his impossible depictions and he was a master of lino and wood cuts and produced many superbly crafted landscapes as well.

During his life, he became obsessed with filling surfaces with pictures that did not overlap or leave spaces. Aged 68, he stated, “Filling two-dimensional planes has become a real mania to which I have become addicted and from which I sometimes find it hard to tear myself away.”

Students will be creating their own tessellations Escher style.

Three Point Perspective


Create a three point perspective sketch using basic guidelines such as horizon line and vanishing points.

Students will create a  three-point perspective design.They will start just as you would in Two-point perspective, with a horizon line and two vanishing points as close to the edge of your page as possible. Only this time, rather than in the middle, place the horizon line close to the top of your page if the viewer will be looking down, or the bottom of your page if the viewer will be looking up.
