Materials needed:
  • A4 or A3 paper
  • 2B pencils and 4B pencils
  • cardboard boxes of various sizes
  • books to place on top of boxes
  • ruler and eraser
  • protractor
What to do:
  • Place cardboard boxes on a table so that the corners are facing you, place books on top of the boxes. Find the horizon line, or the eye line on the boxes with a protractor.
  • If the parallel lines on a box are going upwards then hold the protractor base downwards. Put the middle of the protractor on the corner of the box being drawn and measure the parallel lines.
  • If the parallel lines are going downwards then you hold the protractor upside down with the middle the protractor on the corner of the box, then measure those parallel lines.
  • Use a ruler to draw straight lines. Make sure your drawing is not to large or you won't fit everything on the paper.
  • After you have finished the boxes and books then you can add shading and make the lines darker with your 4B pencil.
  • This lesson is a review of lesson four, mainly learning how to use the protractor the right way and drawing lines in perspective.... back
