In art class we had to draw the art room. So you pick a wall you want to draw in one point perspective. I decided to be different and draw a wall no one else did. It was a challenge, and Ms.Hull probably got sick of me asking all those questions. At the end I was really proud of my view on the art room. One thing I learned was how to draw in 3D. Usually I draw rooms on the paper and they’re flat. It’s actually boring, seeing it flat so drawing the room made me realize there are other ways to make objects in a room stand out. I also learned to have more confidence in myself when it comes to drawing in general. This was a solo project so it was me myself and I. Since I was doing a different wall it was completely different from everyone else. I had to use my artistic eye on how to draw the right size tables and making the windows the right size. My drawing was better because I did it myself. I didn’t use a stencil or google how to draw it. It gave me a sense of independence, knowing I had little help.
If I could to this project over again I would still do the same wall but color my project. The first time I want everyone to look at the detail. I feel color would just ruin the room. I would also use the same size paper but not fold it up. The extra lines ruin the work, if the paper did not have creases in the paper it would probably look a lot more professional. My advice to someone who would want to draw in one point perspective is to appreciate your vanishing point. It makes everything look better. Also don’t be afraid to erase. The eraser will be your best friend. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. You’re not going to be perfect, will you be good? Yes!! Have confidence in yourself say “I can draw” saying you can’t makes you believe it and then you won’t draw. I say if you’re starting draw on a regular sized piece of paper. It gives you a chance to get used to orthogonal and parallel lines. The best resource was Ms.Hull. She was there since question one, of many. She told me believe in my artist eye and keep drawing. It will look good at the end. I also had the support from my orange stream buddies, they helped me when I missed a day of class, and answered more question when needed. Overall I enjoyed this project.
