(KG) Our Name in One-Point Perpective

The objective of this lesson was for the students to create a one-point perspective using the letters of their name.

Definition: One-point perspective is a type of linear perspective. All of types of linear perspectives include a horizon line and a stationary point (the position of the observer). In one-point perspective, only one vanishing point exists; lines radiate outwardly from this point, and perpendicular lines meet at this point. 

We used pencils to draw our design.

We used color pencils and water colors to complete our composition.
We went over our letters with a black sharpie.


  1. These are cool. Great for introducing young kids to the concept.

  2. Very interesting way to teach this perspective, I would like to propose to my grandchildren this artistic exercise.
