Picture of How To Draw A Room Using One Point Perspective
By making a drawing using one point perspective, students will  learn to make a two-dimensional space appear three-dimensional. Students will learn how to use a vanishing point to create a room interior. 

To create a room using One Point Perspective you need to know a few basic things. One Point Perspective is also called Parallel Perspective because YOU the viewer (and artist) are parallel to the objects that you will be drawing. Also, vertical lines are parallel and horizontal lines are parallel and the back edges of objects that recede in the distance are parallel to the front edges of those objects.


Step 1: Step 1

Step 1: To begin your room in one point perspective...using a pencil and a ruler, lightly make an X by connecting the right top corner to the left bottom corner of your paper and by connecting the top left corner to the bottom right.

Thanx, this was very beneficial ..

Please tell me how to construct Mazar e Quaid by one point perspective.

I made this as a starting point and it is a tutorial for drawing a room. To draw furniture you can look at the first picture, it does show some very basic block furniture to get you started. Main thing to remember with one point perspective is that it is not realistic perspective. It is called parallel perspective because horizontal lines are parallel and vertical lines are parallel. Another thing to remember is that objects in the distance are the same shape (only smaller) as things up close! (As for comments that are rude and immature, I'll just suggest that you watch Forrest Gump...he has a saying for that!)

Where is the last step this is not helpful to me thanks ):

Thank you! This is very basic stuff, but I've found that my Jr. High students really like it when I demonstrate it on my Smartboard. High School students seem to like it for a starting point in perspective drawing.
