Two-point perspective worksheets

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 for individual PDFs.

    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!

    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

    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

    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

    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!

    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.

  13. Ivy says

    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

  14. Jennifer Webb says

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

  15. Patricia says

    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!

  16. Andrew Jackson says

    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.

  17. danielle says

    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!!!!

  18. lacey says

    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.

  19. Lisa says

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

    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.

  21. Cruz says

    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

  22. Tiffany says

    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! :)

  23. Darcy says

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

  24. Victoria says

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

  25. Patrizia Proscia says

    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!

    Patrizia

  26. Alison Rich says

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

  27. Watermelon Breath says

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

  28. Thomas Hacker says

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

  29. says

    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!

  30. Greg says

    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!

  31. Diane Ebs says

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

  32. Debi says

    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!

  33. Norma Nickel says

    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.

  34. Rebecca says

    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! :D

  35. art teacher noreen says

    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!
