because they are so focused on drawing a realistic still life! Students did a pre-drawing of a still life that we set up in our classroom. After learning some tips on drawing from life, they tried again. Here are the tips:
1- Plan your space wisely.
2- Lay out your drawing with basic shapes.
3- Use your eyes and a pencil to compare proportions (sizes) and get angles right.
4- Add in the details.
Here are some of the post-drawings from Mrs. Osborne’s class. A few aren’t done, but we focused on process, not product here. Enjoy!
