Third graders were introduced to contour line drawing recently.
Students were introduced to the idea of drawing the whole shape of what they are seeing by drawing the outline of the shape.
Students first traced the shape of the scissors and the glue bottles to see what it looked like to create a drawing through tracing.
Next students focused on looking at the shape and drawing the outline of the simple objects they viewed.
Students did a great job of learning to see what they were drawing instead of drawing what they think they see.
The third graders completed many drawings of the scissors and glue.
It was wonderful to observe their skills improve and their drawings mature.
It was great to watch the students immerse themselves in the drawing process.
