    RULER SKILLS / PERSPECTIVE DRAWING 
     
    Second graders have begun learning the many uses of a ruler as an artist's tool. Using a ruler as a straight edge for tracing, they have created a simple one-point perspective drawing. They learned the importance of a "horizon line" and how a "vanishing point" functions within their drawing.
     
    The excitement level was very high in the art room, when students started to see the "optical illusion" perspective drawing creates!
