The following drawing lessons are a great way to introduce your students to the magic of drawing.
BLIND CONTOUR DRAWING
Contour drawing is an excellent way to train the eye to draw what it really sees rather than what it thinks it sees.
A free-form drawing project that deals with the elements of design – colour, line, shape, form and texture.
PORTRAIT DRAWING – GRID SYSTEM
Using artist Chuck Close as inspiration, art teacher Alison Lorion shows us how to draw portraits using the grid system.
ADVANCED SCRIBBLE PICTURES
This lesson from Kim Swanger requires planning and problem solving, much like a math problem or science experiment. Students will see that scribbles can become much more.
PATTERNS PATTERNS PATTERNS
Using paper, pencils, markers and some objects from around the home and classroom, you and your students can create some fantastic patterns that will astound and amaze.
A UNIQUE DRAWING EXPERIENCE
Students (and teacher) will see how with just one set of directions, everyone in the classroom will come up with very unique works of abstract art.
