A WebQuest about
Points have been vanishing in landscape drawings for years. On your journey to uncover the mystery, you will go back in time to find some of the first vanishing points documented in art history. Then, you will learn about the techniques you will need to recreate a similar scene and create the illusion once again!
To understand perspective enough to reproduce it you must
be a careful detective. Here is your mission…
(from old paintings)
Directions: Record your findings with your partner on the handout.
What is the definition of Linear Perspective?
What are Vanishing Points and Converging Lines?
How does an artist show Depth or create deep space in a painting?
Directions: You will go back in time and view pieces of art from art history. Click on different parts of the painting to discover the hidden evidences of perspective.

Don’t forget to click for evidence of perspective!
View another painting by the same artist.
This time click on what every line in the
painting seems to point to!
3. Now see if Leonardo da Vinci’s artwork showed signs of perspective in a painting he did in 1473 at age 21.
Directions: Perspective drawing helps create the illusion of depth. Before you can create it you must learn how to find in all around you. We have set up spy cameras in different locations throughout the city of Chicago.
spy cam you chose. Include as many clues of perspective that you can find. For example; a vanishing point, converging lines, relative size,
position on the picture plane, and aerial perspective.
Take out paper, pencil, and ruler. Both you and your partner need to follow these steps to each make your own landscape drawing with linear perspective.
Turn your paper horizontally.
Trace the stencil in the center of the paper.
Click here and follow the drawing steps.
Add details to your perspective drawing
such as windows, street lights, cars, & trees.
5. Outline your drawing and color with overwriters.

The Flagellation c. 1469
Montefeltro Altarpiece 1465 (detail)
To make a building, start with a rectangle that goes below and above the horizon line.
Lightly draw converging lines from the top and bottom right edges to the vanishing point.
Draw a vertical line within the converging lines to make the back edge of the building.
Define the roof and bottom of your building. Make sure they still converge to the vanishing point.
Try another building on the other side. Make the rectangle tall enough to go above and below the horizon line.
Lightly draw the converging lines from the top and bottom left edges of the rectangle to the vanishing point.
Define the top and bottom edges of the building. Make sure they both head towards the vanishing point.
Try another building. Create a crowded feeling with more overlapping. Try going off the top of the paper.
Try another building. This time make it lower than the horizon line.
Now, you may go on a driving quest for a vanishing point with Hyper Trak, an online video game.
Can you spot signs of perspective in this game?
