To gain a better understanding of perspective, take your class on a mini field trip around campus to look at different kinds of one and two point perspective such as locker halls, rows of shelves in the library, or corners of buildings. If you have experience with drawing, teach a quick demo on one point perspective before. For some extra credit, have students create a one or two point perspective drawing from observation!
