Veronica Nocella: Final Perspective Drawing

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.
One thing I learned that is vital with any one point perspective drawing is that the vanishing point is what determines the outcome of your drawing, and everything must be precise. I was never aware of how much of an impact one error could potentially make.

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better.
Well, learning this will make my drawings better, for I'll use each technique that I've learned though this drawing and apply it to anything else I decide to draw. 

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
If I could do this assignment again, I would take more of the help I neglected to get. My final drawing would have been better than what it resulted to be. 

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?
My advice would be to put into consideration each line you draw. Every single mark you put to paper is a commitment, and don't be too quick to marry an idea. 

e. What resource helped you the most and why?
The resource that helped me the most was probably the slideshow on moodle that explained every single step of drawing the art room. It was helpful guide, as well as a fantastic visual aid.

Reese Leads Way Over W Philly for Lopsided 19-1 Win

Ethan Reese dominated the normally lively W Philly bats, and got it done on at the plate as well in the lead-off role. After surrendering a couple of singles and walking in a run, thanks to a super-stingy strike zone, Reese shut the door on W Philly and limited the damage to 1 run.

Reese followed with a scorching single after a battle of an at bat and The Rocket erased the brief deficit with 12 runs in the 1st. He would finish up the day going 3-3 with 4 runs scored and 1 RBI. The usual suspects were at it again mashing anything close to the strike zone. Abe Musselman continues to impress in the 2-spot going 2-2 with 3 runs scored and a pair of RBIs in 4 plate appearances. Captain Jeff Schwartz, who continues to lead the team in nearly every offensive category, went 3-3 with a triple and notched 7 more RBIs in 4 trips to the plate. While nearly every team in the league has a top 5 that can inflict damage, SLA stands out with a lineup that consistently bats around. Nearly half of the runs scored for The Rocket came from the 6-9 hitters who showed W Philly hurlers no mercy. 

SLA moved to 5-1 on the season with the lopsided win, and is geared up for a showdown with undefeated Randolph. But first thing is first, as The Rocket looks to remain perfect at home against a rejuvenated Simon Gratz squad on 4/22.

Schwartz hurls "No-No"; Rocket Stays Perfect at Home

The bats were alive as ever for The Rocket as SLA continued to clarify that they should be considered as a candidate for moving up to C Division at seasons end. An upstart Dobbins team that started strong was at a loss for how to handle The Rocket offensive onslaught which hammered twelve hits, forced five errors and knocked in fifteen runs in just two innings. 

Fifteen seems to be the magic number for SLA as they continue to mercy-rule their opponents in their new home digs at Mt. Airy Park. So far this season The Rocket has outscored their opponents 48-3 and only yielded 1 measly hit in 3 home games, none getting past the third inning. 

Jeff Schwartz, who leads the team in nearly every offensive category, also got it done on the mound hurling three perfect innings of work. Only 1 Dobbins batter reached base on an error to lead off the 2nd frame. After he stole 2nd, Schwartz dominated the heart of their order to strand the runner. Schwartz was dominant, striking out 6 batters, en route to his first career no-hitter in a Rocket uniform. 

As has been the case in Mt. Airy, The Rocket had a huge inning with 18 batters coming to the plate, 12 scoring, in the 2nd. Sophomore Stephen "Staxx" Eager-White nearly batted 3 times in the frame as SLA batted around twice. He reached base both times with laser beam shots to the left side, both driving in runs. He scored seemingly moments later both times as the top of the order didn't let Dobbins' pitchers off the hook. 

All contributed to the offensive barrage as every player drove in runs and crossed the plate at least once, further proving there aren't any holes in this line up. Mike Sanders laid down a sweet bunt for an RBI with the bases loaded on a suicide squeeze, and scored two batters later when Abe Musselman drove in two on a hot shot to the left side.

With the win The Rocket keeps pace with red-hot University City and Randolph, both undefeated, as they push past the mid-point of a hectic season. SLA is home again on Thurs, 4/18 hosting W Philly.

Final Perspective Drawing Blue Stream 2013 perspective

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.

I learned that art has more math then one would expect. I also learned that the vanishing point is the key to the drawing. All orthagonals go back to the vanishing point.

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better.

These components taught me how to make a more realistic drawing with the most precise lines I could. 

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

I would have given myself more time. I also would have made sure what I was doing was correct before getting to far into the drawing. I would seek help earlier.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

I'd tell someone to always use a ruler, no matter how straight they think they're lines are. Also, do not be afraid to make mistakes and use a ruler.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?


I think that site that showed us the step-through- step plan on how to draw a one point perspective room was the most helpful. It made me understand the basics of orthogonals in the simplest sense. Ms. Hull was also a great source when I had important questions that need direct answers.

Final Perspective Drawing

1. One thing that I learned before this project is that perspective is just a bunch of straight lines pointed at the vanishing point. I also learned about the vanishing point, birds eye view, and the worms eye view.


2. Learning this technique helped me because I am now able to draw perspective and make it look like a real room that has shadowing, depth, and color.


3. If I were to redo this project I would draw the images on every tile.


4. My advice to somebody that has never done one point perspective drawing is that you should not expect it to be perfect. Not in the beginning and not at the end. You are going to do a lot of erasing through out this project.


5. The resource that helped me the most  were Mrs. Hull and Kevin Courtney because they both helped me when ever I reached out for their help.

Final Perspective Drawing

a. One thing that I learned that I did not know was that everything is and can be viewed different depending on the view. 

b. This helped me because it allowed me to determined how I would draw the shape.

c. I would have tried to draw the whole room and not just one wall. I would have had added more color & more detail. 

d. Do not, I mean do not worry about eraser marks. There are going to be plenty of them for you trying to make things perfect. 

e. The link that Mrs. Hull posted on how to do a basic one point perspective room because it gave me a idea of what the layout should be.

Kristi's 3rd Quarter Art work

In quarter three, my class and I were assigned specific pieces of artwork. In previous quarters our artwork was always as we wanted it to be, but this quarter the curriculum was more conventional with one additional project which would reflect our choice of expression. My individual art work was intended to reflect warmth and nature.  I made a drawing of insects that normally live in warm areas, as well as rain, and a palm tree to signify the tropical aspect of warmth. The wasp and two beetles are all surrounded around a sunflower because a sunflower signifies warmth and that is my desire. Two goals that I intend to make for myself are making a piece of artwork out of various objects, and conducting something enigmatic and syllogistic about what life could mean in a drawing.

Quarter 3 Artwork

​During the third quarter of this school year, I was extremely busy with school work and the college process. I didn't have the time I wanted to really focus in on my art work. My goal of the third quarter was to improve my shading skills and making my drawings more realistic. I feel like I accomplished that in my Iris drawing. I'm very proud of that because I think it's one of the most elegant drawings Iv'e ever done. My goal for the fourth quarter is to spend more time on my art work inside and outside the classroom to improve further. This year so far has been overwhelming but I plan to have more time to focus in on art.

QMALIK 3Q ART

At first I was going to draw difficult pieces like portraits but then I changed my mind and decided to  to do some different than usual. I drew giraffe and some artistic designs which are hard to draw to draw because they require a lot of time and neatness. For next quarter I would be focusing on the same idea of drawing some designs like this.

Final Perspective Drawing-Blue stream-2013-perspective


A. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.

This project, like every other project at SLA, was a learning experience. One thing that I learned that I found interesting is the concept of one point perspective drawings. Before that assignment, I never even knew something like that existed.

B. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better.

It made my drawing and my overall artistic skills better by adding a flare to it. I'm not saying that i'm the best artist or even an intermediate, but because I've learned the skill of drawing in perspective I can make things come to life. 3D art is always interesting to look at, but knowing that I was the one behind the work of art makes me happy.

C. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

Technically speaking, I have done this assignment twice, and speaking from experience it made it better. Now, I am not implying that it is perfect, but by redoing it I made it more professional.If I could do this assignment over, I would add more color and detail to it. 

D. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

My advice to someone who has never done it would be to follow all of the directions given (if there are any). Also to have every orthogonal line go to you vanishing point.

E. What resource helped you the most and why?
The resourced that helped me the most are my classmates, teacher and also the slideshow that was provided to aide me through the process.

Below is the picture of my final product!

Final Perspective Drawing-Blue Stream-2013

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.
I learned how to draw in one point perspective and i did not know how to do that kind of art before.

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better.

 It made my drawings better by making them more accurate, i never measured my artwork before so by doing this it made my art look more professional.  
c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
I would take more time on it so it would be the best possible drawing i could make it.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

My advice would be to take you're time and do the measurements because they really help

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The website that showed us how to do it because i learn better when i have examples.

Final Perspective drawing-Polite

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.

I learned how to draw with lots of detail, as well as how to carefully observe my environment.

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better.

I was able to create a mental presence of the room in my drawing. Without observing your 
drawing might not convey anything.

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

I would probably remember to upload it on time.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

I would recommend doing your measurements carefully, check to see what is commensurate and what the proportions are.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

I didn't use many of the sources, with enough trial and error you can create a pretty good representation of something.

Final Perspective Drawing

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.

One thing that I learned specifically that I did not know before was the importance of the 'orthogonal line', in one point perspective all of the lines created must all line up to the orthogonal because it keeps all of them even and in perspective. 

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better.

Learning this overall made my project much better, because it set a goal for me, and it was easier because I then understood the concept of one point perspective. 

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

If I was to do this assignment again I would manage my time properly and try to add more detail overall to the drawing. 

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

My advice would to be to try your hardest, and I would also tell them not to be afraid to make mistakes because those are what really make your project better, and in the words of Ms. Hull, "Break down your learning walls" because you grow so much and have a lot to reflect on when that action is done. 

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The resources that helped me most were Ms. Hull, Wynn Geary, and the moodle page because they all were there to help me and I feel that without them I would not fully understand one point perspective.

Final Perspective Drawing

What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?

I learned many things through this project and one thing that will stick with me is how you have to work hard and go through trial and error to get the best product of your work. This piece of art is not my best but I know what I could do to make that so and that involves a great deal of work and perseverance. 

How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?

This has made my drawings better by showing me that if it looks wrong then it is wrong because that is what art is looking seeing and observing; three synonyms that have very different meanings to an artist.

If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

Honestly, I would do the whole thing over and start with the color and add the lines afterwards.

What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one-point perspective drawing before?

Just keep trying and you will get it one day and you will be very happy when you do because many people have trouble with this.

What resource helped you the most and why?

The room helped me most I think I could walk in there blindfolded and know where everything goes because of this drawing.

Final Perspective Drawing-Blue Stream-2013

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.
I learned how to do one point perspective. I did not know anything about that topic before. 
b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better.
Understanding this topic made drawing easier for me. I can understand 3D drawing now. 
c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
If I could do this assignment over, I would just make it better and nicer. I would do the stools over because they are only okay, but I want it to be perfect. 
d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?
I would tell them to have patience and just take your time. Also I would remind them that you would have a lot of mistakes. 
e. What resource helped you the most and why?
The resources that helped me were my friends and my art teacher. They helped me a lot and give me pointers on the drawing and how I could make my drawing better. Also the powerpoint that our teacher provided us with helped a lot.

Final Perspective Drawling-( Red 2013 Perspective)

a. I learned how draw in a perspective I never have done before. Drawing in a different perspective helped me understand the fundamentals of drawing. I also learned how to draw with a steady hand, lightly. 

b. If I hadn't practiced drawing a room I wouldn't have finished my drawling. It would have been more complicated than it already was. I probably would have given up. 

c. If I did this assignment again I would finish the ceiling tiles. Also I would color more to add more detail to the room. Lastly, I would do a different wall to challenge myself. 

d. You need to take the practice drawings to your advantage. Do every one so it won't be as complicated. These drawings will help you finish your final drawing and help you out in the long run. 

e. My sketchbook helped me the most. It showed me how to make doors, windows, and ceilings. This was the best resources I had other than my classmates and the websites given on Moodle.

Final Perspective Drawing

Learning how to draw a one point perspective helped me draw better because I learned to keep trying until the drawing was right. I also learned to ask for help. These things are crucial in learning how to draw for me because they helped me to get out of my comfort zone and discover new things.

If I were to do this assignment over again, I would draw the floor tiles first along with the ceiling tiles before adding the furniture. I would also add more color and make my pencil marks lighter, so that I won't have to erase so hard. And I would include the smallest details. 

To anyone who has not drawn a one point perspective drawling before, I would advise them to keep trying if you come to a "learning wall", to ask a lot of questions, to think out of the box by including all the details. 

The how-to slide show helped me the most because it went over step-by-step of what we had to do and when ever I needed help I could always go back to that source to get advise on how to draw something.

Final Perspective Drawing

In art class we had to draw the art room. So you pick a wall you want to draw in one point perspective. I decided to be different and draw a wall no one else did. It was a challenge, and Ms.Hull probably got sick of me asking all those questions. At the end I was really proud of my view on the art room. One thing I learned was how to draw in 3D. Usually I draw rooms on the paper and they’re flat. It’s actually boring, seeing it flat so drawing the room made me realize there are other ways to make objects in a room stand out. I also learned to have more confidence in myself when it comes to drawing in general. This was a solo project so it was me myself and I. Since I was doing a different wall it was completely different from everyone else. I had to use my artistic eye on how to draw the right size tables and making the windows the right size. My drawing was better because I did it myself. I didn’t use a stencil or google how to draw it. It gave me a sense of independence, knowing I had little help.

If I could to this project over again I would still do the same wall but color my project. The first time I want everyone to look at the detail. I feel color would just ruin the room. I would also use the same size paper but not fold it up. The extra lines ruin the work, if the paper did not have creases in the paper it would probably look a lot more professional. My advice to someone who would want to draw in one point perspective is to appreciate your vanishing point. It makes everything look better. Also don’t be afraid to erase. The eraser will be your best friend. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. You’re not going to be perfect, will you be good? Yes!! Have confidence in yourself say “I can draw” saying you can’t makes you believe it and then you won’t draw. I say if you’re starting draw on a regular sized piece of paper. It gives you a chance to get used to orthogonal and parallel lines. The best resource was Ms.Hull. She was there since question one, of many. She told me believe in my artist eye and keep drawing. It will look good at the end. I also had the support from my orange stream buddies, they helped me when I missed a day of class, and answered more question when needed. Overall I enjoyed this project.

Final Perspective Drawing

`One thing that this drawing helped me learn is how even the slightest detail can affect your drawing. Making sure every line is exactly even with every other line is extremely important in order to make everything look realistic. After learning perspective, my drawings will be extremely more precise and I will pay way more attention to details. If I did this assignment again I think I would choose a wall with a little more details for more of a challenge and to see how well I would do. My advice to someone who has never done one point perspective is to have patience. Everything really has to be perfect in order to make your drawing look realistic. You have to be extremely patient because something may not work on the first try, but you can’t give up. In the end, the critiques that you make on your drawing are what helps it look its best. A resource that helped me the most was the one provided on Moodle to us by our Art teacher. It was a step-by-step tutorial to create this drawing. When I followed the directions provided exactly, my drawing came out a lot better than I thought it would.

The last picture is my super awesome project. This is a poster that I drew for my sister for her graduation coming up this May. I did this project all on my own for a couple days now. I'm really excited to give this to her.

Final Drawing

Sattera Mark  Reflection


1. At first, I thought that art was a real complicated thing and was extremely hard. By taking this course I learned that in order to be a successful artist you just have to know a few things. Bird’s eye view, worm’s eye view, and vanishing point are all important thing for an artist to know.


2.Learning this made my drawings better because I had more understanding of a structure of a room.


3. If I had a chance to do my drawing over again I would ask for more help. I don’t think I took advantage of all the opportunities to get help.


4. I would tell them to always remember bird’s eye view, worm’s eye view, and vanishing point.


5. The slideshow that was posted on moodle helped me the most. It was a great reference.

Final Perspective Drawing

In 9th grade art, we studied one point perspective drawing. My finished product (below) is a scaled down rendition of one view of our art room. 

IMG_9398
​a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.

I'm not sure if this was actually something I learned, however, this project did help me realize the importance of a vanishing point and making sure that your orthogonal lines really do trace back to said point. It really creates structure and dimension in one's work. When done properly, just making sure that the lines in a piece go in the right direction can change a good piece of artwork into a great piece of artwork. 


b. How did learning this thing make your drawings better?

As I said, knowing where your lines go certainly helps with the dimension of the drawing. When I realized this, my drawing ended up really being more than rectangles and triangles and diagonal lines. The direction of each of my lines ended up being incredibly significant to my finished product from turning a piece of paper into a full room. 


c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

I would certainly take out my ink tracing. I sketched over my drawing in the final stages in the hopes that it would help the colors and dimensions really 'pop'. However, it took my piece from a finished drawing to a sketch with color. 


d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

Measure, measure, measure! Make sure that your lines all match up and that the actual dimensions of whatever your drawing make sense when scaled up or down. It's a very simple sounding task that, honestly, can completely change your drawing if not done properly. 


e. What resource helped you the most and why?

My sketchbook sketches on one-point perspective were extremely helpful during this process. I sketched them over and over to get a sort of 'muscle memory' type of relationship between my pencil and my hand.
