These worksheets are intended for use after students have mastered my one-point perspective worksheets.

Begin by walking your students through the first exercise with boxes. Afterwards, they should be able to do the others with a little guidance. The worksheets get progressively more complex. Click on the images below to purchase individual PDFs for 99 cents each.

Wow! These are great!
I can’t remember how I stumbled onto your blog, probably searching for lesson plans or the like.
I’m currently in grad school, in the middle of my student teaching (or gearing up for the bulk of it) at an arts middle school. I worked as a graphic designer for six years before deciding to give it all up and become an art teacher. Your site cracks me up and inspires me! I am starting a perspective/line unit this week with my middle schoolers.
Anyway, I find your site interesting! I’ll definitely be checking it daily!

Thanks, Jeannie!

It sounds like we have a lot in common: starting out in graphic design and finding a higher calling in arts education. Glad you stopped by!

These are absolutely fantastic. I have found these worksheets so useful. I just googled perspective lessons and found you!!

Dawn:

You are my Hero! I have used most of these 1 point & 2 point lessons from the internet as well but you made them into terrific worksheets! I wish I had found you earlier this school year but I will be using your worksheets next year! Thank you so much for being so generous to share your work. This will be so much more efficient and clear than my drawing on a big pad on an easel and walking the students through it while they work in their sketch books. Cheri

Dawn · March 5, 2007 at 5:30 pm

You are welcome, Cheri and Dee!

Thanks!Looking at incorporating teaching perspective with creating Howard Arkley inspired work- Great website and excellent worksheets – will make teaching perspective so much easier- I have found this as one of the hardest things to teach students

Corinne · August 18, 2007 at 1:01 pm

FANTASTIC! Thanks for posting these! I am a new teacher and these really helped out!

Dawn · August 19, 2007 at 7:31 am

Thank you so much for these wonderful worksheets. These are great practice exercises for my high schoolers. You have a great site here! I’ll definitely be returning!

Joney Swift · September 26, 2008 at 4:19 pm

hi, I just stumbled onto you website and I am very pleased to have found it. I’m a high school art teacher and working on 2 and 3 point perspective. I have my own approach but needed a new perspective… no pun intended!!!
sometimes it helps to give the kids a different approach, I’ll try it tomorrow…yes I have Sat. classes…I teach at a boarding school. Thank you and I am adding your site to my “Favorites”.
Very sincerely,
Joney

Sally · October 1, 2008 at 3:01 pm

I stumbled on your website searching for better H.S. level lessons on the dreaded 2 pt perspective.
Having been a photographer prior to teaching digital art and draw paint one, I never had to learn this.
Soooo, I think your worksheets are great and your website/ wikispace??

I am also trying to get my wikispace website designed and running.
Thanks again!
Sally

Dawn · October 2, 2008 at 8:21 pm

To answer your question, Sally, this is a blog rather than a wikispace. Thanks for your kind comments!

Sarah · October 24, 2008 at 12:34 pm

I have my 8th graders draw cities in two point perspective but have also seen it suggested that they draw floating dice. It makes them think about circles in perspective too.

Ivy · October 26, 2008 at 1:50 pm

Awesome. Am in the beginning of 2 point perspective teaching. First year teaching High School coming from elementary art. Kids don’t want to listen (because talking to each other constantly is sooooooo much more interesting – ugh!) to instructions and was looking for a pictorial…and here it is. Muchos gracias. Gonna visit your site often.

Thanks so much for sharing your lessons. Some art teachers are so posessive (and afraid? of what?) to do this. YOU are terrific – and brilliant

Dawna · October 27, 2008 at 5:50 pm

These worksheets are really cool, I will try to share them with my students.

Gina Beca · November 6, 2008 at 8:04 pm

Your a life saver!

Jennifer Webb · December 8, 2008 at 8:06 am

These are so very useful. Thank you. I am using them in my classroom with my first year art students.

Patricia · March 5, 2009 at 8:03 pm

THANK YOU!!! I teach middle school and have been looking for something like this for too long. Why should we have to recreate everything- you are great, and I appreciate your effort and sharing, thanks!

Andrew Jackson · August 27, 2009 at 7:04 am

THANK YOU SO MUCH! These are incredible and using these has helped me teach 2-PT to my 7th graders so well and so easily. They are absolutely amazing.

danielle · March 7, 2010 at 10:05 am

I stumbled upon this site and this page really helped me a lot! I am also a new teacher and find teaching perspective very complicated. I hope you don’t mind me using these worksheets, but they really are a blessing!!!!

lacey · March 15, 2010 at 1:19 am

Thank you so much. Now I can finally understand what perspective drawing is and you have given fantastic work sheets to help. thank you thank you thank you.

Michelle Brunner · April 6, 2010 at 4:46 am

Thanks Dawn! These handouts are great!

Lisa · April 20, 2010 at 4:35 am

Thankyou for sharing your worksheets. I find perspective really tricky and your worksheets are very helpful. I wish more teachers would share like you.

Breanna Moran · September 1, 2010 at 7:20 pm

Hi Dawn,

You my dear, are a lifesaver. I’m in my third week teaching, as a brand new teacher and completely swamped. I have been attempting to tackle class sizes of 40+ students for 6 periods, BTSA, T4S, and after school supervisions in addition to lesson planning and grading.
I’m teaching perspective to my Art 1 students and your worksheets have saved me an entire weekend of creative engineering to create my own.

You have a brilliant website. Thanks so much for sharing your creative energy.

Cruz · October 12, 2010 at 5:22 am

Dawn this is a great way to start my students off in drawing with perspective. Great way to get the brain moving in the right direction. Thanks

Tiffany · December 3, 2010 at 5:09 pm

Dawn you are wonderful! I agree with all the previous posts – what a lifesaver! Thank you for being so generous with your talent and skill as a teacher! ūüôā

Darcy · March 23, 2011 at 8:05 am

It is wonderful that you are willing to share these assignments with all of us! Thank you!

Victoria · April 20, 2011 at 4:21 am

So nice, simple, and to the point so, my middle school students can follow along a bit easier. Thank you!!!!

Patrizia Proscia · April 20, 2011 at 5:34 am

Thank you, Thank You, Thank you. I’m thrilled I stumbled across your sight your worksheets are fantastic. Thank you for sharing. I’m working on one point and two point perspective and this will be a huge help!

THANK YOU! I teach 6-8 art and these are just fantastic. Thank you for sharing. It is truly appreciated!

Watermelon Breath · September 21, 2011 at 12:31 pm

I love working with one point and two point perspective. Right now I am working on a three point perspective bedroom.

Thomas Hacker · October 18, 2011 at 12:53 pm

Awesome thanks for sharing, I try perspective with my middle school students and this is going to be soooooooo helpful.

Christine · October 23, 2011 at 5:11 pm

Thank you so much for sharing these! I’ve been teaching Graphic Design for 6 years, and it has been that long since I taught Fine Art. This year, I’m teaching both, and I find myself a little rusty with the perspective lesson…and very, very pregnant. So these resources were a lifesaver! Thanks again!

Greg · December 13, 2011 at 10:41 am

Thank you for these! I was a photographer and graphic designer for 20+ years until I was laid off. Somehow I found myself as an Art Instructor at a private elementry/Jr High school. I have been scouring the internet and the few books I find to try to teach the kids the basics of art. Being self- and on-the-job taught myself I’m learning right along with the kids. Sites like yours are such a great help! Thank You!

Diane Ebs · April 11, 2012 at 9:00 am

Dear Dawn,
I love the website! I am an art teacher and this site is a great resource. Thank you very much!

Debi · April 25, 2012 at 6:28 pm

Wow…these are great as we have to have a mastery check on new learning everyday in the program we teach at our school (this includes related arts. Sometimes it is a difficult thing to do; these worksheets will make great mastery checks as I can have the students label one of each with the hl, ol, and vp for each type of perspective and label each type. Thank you for sharing!

Lesa · October 7, 2012 at 10:21 am

great. thanks for sharing. very generous.

Norma Nickel · October 23, 2012 at 1:43 pm

These are great worksheets- thanks soooo much!I have made a hallway in 1 point perspective worksheet so I know how effort and time goes into making them up. I have a PowerPoint on Slideshare called one point perspective hallway if want to use it. Thanks again.

Rebecca · January 11, 2013 at 3:17 pm

OMG, you are a lifesaver!!!!!! These rock! Thank you Thank you Thank you! You just saved the day for this first year middle school art teacher! ūüėÄ

Shital · March 25, 2013 at 6:47 am

Thank you for such wonderful tutorials….Simply great !

art teacher noreen · April 18, 2013 at 3:20 pm

I never write on blogs or any website. This is 1st time I ever had the need to say the biggest “THANK YOU!” I am a first year art teacher and your worksheets have stopped my head from exploding! You are a wonderful person! Thank you!

Rene · February 2, 2014 at 8:03 am

Wow! You are amazing and generous, thank you so much!

Rachel · February 23, 2014 at 8:01 pm

I cannot access these pdf files. Is there something wrong with the link?

Dawn · March 14, 2014 at 2:41 pm

The links are all fixed now. Sorry for the technical difficulties!

Nadine · October 12, 2015 at 11:24 am

Your great website helps art teachers from Canada, too. Thank you so much for all those great and helpful tips and files. I am an ex-graphic designer as well. I left it all to become an art teacher, I am teaching for Freshman and Sophomore level. Even at this level, your 1 and 2 points perspective tips helped me!!

Zoe · November 16, 2015 at 6:56 pm

Wow thank you so much for such an awesome site Dawn! Your worksheets are fantastic and so helpful, you are about to make a first year teacher’s life much easier! I too changed careers from a costume designer to an art teacher, and what a wild ride it has been so far!
Thanks again!

godfather · February 22, 2016 at 6:17 am
