The idea of writing this article was born after coming across the illustrations of the book by the Chinese colleague Yin Guangyu “Encyclopedia of Art Education in China: Perspective”, published in Hangzhou by the “Chinese Academy of Fine Arts” publishing house in 1999 [1]. The textbooks on perspective in Russian offer valuable material to study, but more often are focused on the training of architects [2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 7; 8; 9; 10; 11; 12]. There are very few textbooks on perspective for artists, painters or graphic artists, which makes the data in this study even more relevant. The purpose is to develop a set of theoretical and practical materials to organize the process of teaching students of art universities in methods of determining the perspective height of people depicted on the on flat and inclined planes, which in turn will help to convey the size of other objects in perspective. Research results: reproductions of different paintings were analyzed; a set of visual aids (drawings) was formed; recommendations for how to use these materials in the classroom and individual students' work have been developed. The contribution to the existing research: the article has developed a set of theoretical recommendations and practical visual aids on finding the perspective artist's eye level to determine the perspective dimensions of people and other objects depicted on flat and inclined surfaces. The practical significance of the research results: in this article the specifics of using this method in the classroom during drawing classes are considered, and several tasks for organizing students' independent work are proposed.
