Girl Scouts: One Point Perspective



Girl scouts had a special drawing class this week at The Golden Button. The focus was on perspective and shading. These drawings were created using a vanishing point on the horizon line. The girls used pencils, charcoal, pastels, colored pencils, watercolors and focused on shadows and blending.
