Raider Spotlight

Perspective
Jennifer Davis, BLMS Visual Art

Perspective
(1) the art of drawing solid objects on a two-dimensional surface so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other when viewed from a particular point

The BLMS art students will begin the year learning to create perspective drawings.  The 8th graders will be drawing 1-point perspective city drawings complete with several buildings, roads, sidewalks, and other city details.  7th graders will draw castles in 2-point perspective style while focusing on fun castle characteristics.  The 6th graders will be drawing barns or houses in rural settings while focusing on 1-point perspective. Lastly, the 5th graders will learn to draw fronts, sides, and tops of buildings to represent forms.  Their buildings will feature various perspectives.

Perspective
(2) a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view

As I was planning projects and preparing supplies for the start of the school year, I was focused on so much more than just the lessons and art media to be utilized.  Lots of extra details were in my mind concerning a unique start to the school year for all of us.  It occurred to me that this second definition of perspective is equally as relevant to my students as we begin this particular school year.  It will be challenging to social distance, wear masks, and the various other behaviors we will need to consider.  However, I will encourage my students daily to keep a positive attitude.  If we choose to be positive, and thankful that we are again learning together at school, we can together make it through the challenges we may encounter.  My perspective… I am so happy to be teaching my students perspective drawing in person, in our wonderful school, and in my terrific art room!  In my point of view, we have an outstanding school and wonderful community.  Together we can!
