CMS students draw themselves

Campbellsville Middle School art students recently drew themselves using a new art technique.

 

In Jo Ann Harris’s art class, students are learning about foreshortening.

 

Foreshortening is depicting an object as compressed when seen from a particular viewpoint, or as if the object is coming toward the viewer.

 

Students learned about the technique and then put it to practice by drawing themselves, with their feet in the foreground.

 

They were asked to draw themselves as if the viewer was looking at the drawing from the floor.
