Wall Tape Drawings Each group of students had to select one image to work from, then appoint a leader. The role of the leader was to keep everyone on task on a daily basis. Everyone was accountable for the success of this project. Each group was given four rolls of electrical tape and a pair of scissors. Using their newfound knowledge of one- and two-point perspective, stu - dents were asked to recreate their cho- sen photo on a large scale with tape. Each group would determine the scale. New Discoveries I was amazed at how well students cooperated and collaborated on this unit. This was a great way to assess their understanding of perspective. The wall tape drawings were exhib- ited for about a month, which many students, staff, and administration appreciated. I could feel a sense of pride from my students. The artwork was so inspiring that another class of mine wanted to do a large-scale draw- ing using string and pushpins.
