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:
- Left Side
- Right Side
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..
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.
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.
should also include window placements and surface decoration details.
Have fun, testing your
visual skills as you prepare these five elevations.
