Can you teach perspective with a 3D modeling program? Use @Google SketchUp

Do you want to incorporate 3D modeling in your class? Check out my Yahoo Voices article Teaching Sculpture on iPods

Here is a collection of images that my students made utilizing Google Sketch Up. They got most of their information on the video tutorials provided by Google Sketch Up and they were able to modify and/or use pre-existing models that were uploaded to the Google Sketch Up model library. When the students were done, they also had the option to add their work to the library and share their work with the world.
