Today in art, Neutrons and Electrons worked on drawing 3D structures using isometric paper (if you wish to print a few pieces of the paper, a template is here). We talked about using the grid lines to help give the appropriate 3D perspective. We also worked on following 3 main rules of isometric drawings:
- Horizontal edges are drawn at 30 degrees
- Vertical edges are drawn as vertical lines
- Parallel edges appear as parallel lines
After they had their basic structures, they finished the drawings off with shading and embellishments (fences, trees, etc).
Everybody did a great job and worked really hard on this. Attached are a few examples of the work.
What a great way to end the art year!
