Drawing from Observation


Caitlin B.



Fifth grade students sharpened their observing skills and created contour line drawings of their shoe.  We discussed how a contour line follows the outside and inside edges of the shoe.  Students drew in stitching details and also learned how stippling, hatching, and cross-hatching could add value to their drawing.  The students thought it was great to take their shoes off in art....I think they did an awesome job on their drawings!
