Drawing Elevations for an Old School House
 Here we see the front, left side, and part of the top of our old time School House. You will need to use this picture and the one below to create five elevations: Front Back Left Side Right Side Top. The challenge of drawing an elevation is to draw a flat picture recording only what you would see by looking straight at the building from the given direction, be it from the front or back or top etc.. Because you are drawing without any perspective, your figures will all be flat polygons. For example, the doorway on the front elevation of this school will look like a rectangle topped with a triangle. You will not be able to see any of the sides of the doorway. (scale: 1/4" = 1') Your elevations will also include dimensions for conversion. In the drawing of the doorway above, we have used a scale of 1/4" = 1'. This means that every 1 inch on the drawing will generate 4 feet in reality on the building. Elevations should also include window placements and surface decoration details. Have fun, testing your visual skills as you prepare these five elevations.
