Visual arts: exploring space through perspective

Good day! We hope you will enjoy the following programme. You will view houses and buildings differently after this!

[lo 1.7]

• You have been introduced to colour, line, tonal values, pattern, art forms and scale .
• In this learning unit the focus will be on scale and perspective . Space and perspective will be explored further in a project where two- and three-dimensionality will be combined.
• Perspective ” is a method whereby a feeling of space and distance is created in a drawing.

STEP 1

First, look at all the parallel lines in the classroom. For instance, look at all the top and bottom sections of the door and the windows. The lines where the wall meets the ceiling and floor are also parallel. This means that the distance between the ceiling and the floor at the one end of the wall is the same as the distance at the other end. Look at the picture of a building below and then draw lines with a ruler on the ground, the bottom and top edges of the door(s) and window(s), the bottom edge of the roof and the top part of the roof.

STEP 2

Find a photograph of a house or a building that is seen from an oblique angle. A good place to look is in the home guide of a newspaper or in a property agent’s brochure. Paste the photo onto a sheet of paper. Draw the same lines as in Step 1, but draw the lines past the end of the house or building. What happens to the lines? Extend the lines now until they join up at one point. It could possibly happen outside the paper.

STEP 3

First, draw the front of a building. Then draw horizontal and parallel lines through the following parts of the house: the top of the roof, the bottom edge of the roof, the top and bottom edges of the windows and door(s) and the bottom of the wall on the ground. The drawing may be done in line only. Now draw a vertical line at the side of the house and place a dot in each spot where the horizontal lines cross the vertical line.

STEP 4

On the right side of another page, copy the vertical line with the dots that you drew in the previous step. Then draw a horizontal ground-line across the page at the bottom page, where the lowest dot is. On the left of the page, make a dot on the ground-line. This dot on the left-hand side must then be joined by means of soft pencil lines with the dots on the vertical line. The rest of the house can be drawn afterwards by means of vertical lines. This method can be repeated to create a number of adjoining houses, or even a whole row of houses in a street.

[lo 1.7]

• You are now going to draw more houses in perspective, while using the same technique. Your educator will help.

Step 1

Draw a horizontal line almost at the bottom of the page that has been turned crosswise (i.e. “landscape”). Make a dot more or less in the centre of that line. Repeat the process that was done in Step 4 of the previous activity, on both sides of the paper in order to create a street scene. In the background you can draw the sky with clouds, mountains or trees to complete the scene. Then you must paste corrugated board over parts of the houses along the front of your drawing, closest to you. Finally, you can use pastels, crayons, paint or a combination of these to add some colour to the picture.

Remember that warm colours come to the foreground and cold colours move back. Therefore, use the warmer colours in front and the cold colours towards the back to emphasise the feeling of distance even more.

On a larger scale, this street scene could be used as backdrop for a puppet theatre or, on a very large scale, as the backdrop for a theatre production.

Assessment

 Learning Outcomes(LOs) LO 1 CREATING, INTERPRETING AND PRESENTING The learner will be able to create, interpret and present work in each of the art forms. Assessment Standards(ASs) We know this when the learner: VISUAL ARTS 1.7 transforms visual information into structured compositions based on individually selected, real or imagined situations in South Africa , using available materials and appropriate techniques in both two-dimensional and three- dimensional work.

are nano particles real
yeah
Joseph
Hello, if I study Physics teacher in bachelor, can I study Nanotechnology in master?
no can't
Lohitha
where we get a research paper on Nano chemistry....?
nanopartical of organic/inorganic / physical chemistry , pdf / thesis / review
Ali
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level
learn
da
no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts
Bhagvanji
hey
Giriraj
Preparation and Applications of Nanomaterial for Drug Delivery
revolt
da
Application of nanotechnology in medicine
has a lot of application modern world
Kamaluddeen
yes
narayan
what is variations in raman spectra for nanomaterials
ya I also want to know the raman spectra
Bhagvanji
I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.
Alexandre
nanocopper obvius
Alexandre
what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?
what is a peer
What is meant by 'nano scale'?
What is STMs full form?
LITNING
scanning tunneling microscope
Sahil
how nano science is used for hydrophobicity
Santosh
Do u think that Graphene and Fullrene fiber can be used to make Air Plane body structure the lightest and strongest. Rafiq
Rafiq
what is differents between GO and RGO?
Mahi
what is simplest way to understand the applications of nano robots used to detect the cancer affected cell of human body.? How this robot is carried to required site of body cell.? what will be the carrier material and how can be detected that correct delivery of drug is done Rafiq
Rafiq
if virus is killing to make ARTIFICIAL DNA OF GRAPHENE FOR KILLED THE VIRUS .THIS IS OUR ASSUMPTION
Anam
analytical skills graphene is prepared to kill any type viruses .
Anam
Any one who tell me about Preparation and application of Nanomaterial for drug Delivery
Hafiz
what is Nano technology ?
write examples of Nano molecule?
Bob
The nanotechnology is as new science, to scale nanometric
brayan
nanotechnology is the study, desing, synthesis, manipulation and application of materials and functional systems through control of matter at nanoscale
Damian
Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
what king of growth are you checking .?
