**Definitions**:

*Linear Perspective-*A mathematical system for creating the illusion of space and distance on a flat surface such as a canvas or wall.

*Horizon Line-*In perspective this line is drawn across the canvas at the viewer's eye

level. It represents the line in nature where the sky appears to meet the ground.

*Vanishing point-*The single point in a picture where all parallel lines that run from the viewer to the horizon line appear to come together. The vanishing point is generally placed at the viewer's eye level.

*Orthogonal Lines-*Straight diagonal lines drawn to connect points around the edges of a picture to the vanishing point. They represent parallel lines receding into the distance and help draw the viewer's eye into the depth of the picture.

*Transversal Lines-*a line that connects two orthogonal lines.

*One point perspective-*It is a perspective in which all parallel lines meet at a single point on the horizon.

*Two point perspective-*It is a perspective in which all parallel lines meet at two different points on the horizon, both 90˚ from the object.

**Practices**:

1. One Point Perspective:

One point perspective shows all of the orthogonal lines going back to one point shown with cubes

2. Perspective of a Circle:

This is showing the perspective of a circle as an ellipse in a one point perspective

3. Showing Depth:

This shows depth using a one point perspective with a subject of trees

4. Showing Depth:

This shows depth using a one point perspective and color: Another way to make the paper seem like it has depth is by making the background blue and hazy

5. Two Point Perspective:

Two point perspective is shown by looking at a cube from an edge and having all orthogonal lines lead to two points on the horizon line.
