This blog focuses on the subject of creating digital images or drawings with MS Word. Those who don't have access to professional image-editing or computer graphics software can try using MS Word Drawing program as an alternative. I would like to share my ideas and views with readers on how to draw various types of graphical images with MS Word. If any of my material violates any establishment's or person's copyright, please inform me and I’ll have it removed.

HOW TO DRAW A HOUSE IN MS WORD
MICROSOFT WORDDRAWING PROJECT No. 12 (PART 1)
TITLE :HOW TO DRAW A ONE POINT PERSPECTIVE MODEL HOUSE IN MS WORD
Here is the model of a modest brick house complete with a chimney that was drawn entirely by Freeform line tool. First, start with the side portion. Secondly, draw the front portion of the house. Next, draw the roof, and so on. Some knowledge about linear perspective is needed to create this drawing so that the drawing will not be out of proportion. I will show you later how to use this drawing project to teach an art lesson about one point perspective. I actually tried the idea of teaching students the basics of computer graphics with MS Word in my school many years ago. My main intention was to expose them to the concept of computer graphics. I took my students to the school computer lab a few times and taught them how to draw pictures with the MS Word Drawing toolbar (Microsoft Office 95 and 97) and they enjoyed the lessons. The picture that I taught them to draw was an adult ant (with wings) which could be drawn using only the Oval and Moon shapes and Line tool for the feelers. Let me leave this project like that for the time being (without the dissected drawing parts) for readers to practise drawing the model house on their own as homework. I will show how the drawing is done in my next post. As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. See you then!
