Students looked through a stack of books including Vitamin P, Vitamin P2, and a handful of New American Paintings, picked an artist that they liked, and then made a painting in the style of that artist using their own imagery. They worked on them for 2 weeks in class which is standard in my classes for something that is large and conceptually challenging. I might even give a couple of extra days if they seem to be working hard as a group and need it.
I showed students a presentation on various types of perspective including isometric and hierarchical proportion using video games and the work of Dan Hernandez, David Jien, and Indian Miniatures.
I gave students a presentation on Isometric Perspective using engineering renderings, video games, and cut away architectural drawings. They had to create a building that solved a problem and could use either isometric or 2-point perspective. They had about 2 weeks of class time to finish them.
