Drawing Machines

Check out this site to explain drawing machines. It's a great way to combine technology and art. If you are teaching perspective and doing grid work you could discuss with your students many of the machines on this page such as the Perspectograph which was used similar to how we use grids in art education classes today.It also ties into proportion, Durer, and Da Vinci. Another idea is to see if your students could build something similar to one of these machines and use it for a work of art. http://www.acmi.net.au/AIC/DRAWING_MACHINES.html
