So todays blog lesson was supposed to be on perspective. Yes, I did say "supposed to be". And it was supposed to go up Monday, and today is Tuesday. And, yes, its going to be delayed a few more days. Because I'm just barely getting over a really bad cold (it lasted over a week--ugh) but there is another reason.
I have been asked to teach a drawing class to a Girl Scouts group this Thursday! And all my planning about this art class keeps turning into, how am I going to explain to the girls these art principles? And guess what, one of the principles I'm supposed to cover is perspective.
So this is what I am going to do. I am going to keep planning and outlining my class for the girls, which I will present on Thursday. They will be my guinea pigs, I'll see what seems to make sense to them and what maybe could be explained better.
THEN, on Friday, I will post the awesome tested Perspective lesson.
In the meantime, for people interested the basics of perspective, this video was really helpful to me. However, since perspective is a pretty complicated subject and this video touches on some of the more complex parts of it, I'm not sure if someone who knows nothing about perspective would be able to follow it or not. It does start with the basics, though. I'm putting it here so I don't feel completely lame and that the people I'm imagining are actually practicing drawing with me have something to look at.
