See the card on the table far away.

Does it look like it is standing up?

What if we move to a different spot?



Today we learned about perspective art.



First, we folded our papers to create the right angle needed for this trick to work.



Then students carefully traced the folded card to match it up with the center line.



Sometimes friends helped hold the paper down. Everyone wanted their lines to be straight and smooth.



Then came the tricky part. Students had to carefully angle their image to line up the Ace of Hearts properly.


After some shading, students were ready to show off their finished artwork.






It’s magic.



It took practice, but everyone did a great job at shading.
