Third grade students have been learning about contour and continuous line drawing.
Students have been using “George”, our classroom skeleton, as a model.
These drawing exercises have been forcing the students to explore a new method of drawing.
Everyone has learned new skills in this new method of drawing.
It’s exciting to see students’ drawing skills improve through this process.
The line in a continuous line drawing is unbroken from the beginning to the end. The drawing tool stays in constant contact with the surface of the paper during the entire length of the drawing process.
It has been great fun to see the third graders’ confidence grow in their drawing abilities as the school year progresses.
