Reindeer portraits

Standard

For our last project before Christmas break first grade students created a reindeer portrait.

The next step was to trace over the drawing with a black sharpie marker.

After tracing with a maker, students erased any remaining pencil marks.

The next step was to add color to the portrait with crayons.

Everyone decided which colors would be right for their reindeer portrait.

Skeleton drawing

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Third grade students have been using their new knowledge of contour line and continuous line drawing to create skeleton drawings.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students have been viewing my full size skeleton named “George” and drawing him.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone has been focusing on the skeleton and trying not to look at their paper as they draw.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The goal of this drawing session was for students to have their pencil move with their eyes while looking at the skeleton’s contour.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This required the third graders to focus and concentrate on their subject.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students created wonderful drawings for their first attempt at drawing such a large model.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students worked hard learning and applying new skills to their drawings.
