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.
Third grade students have continued with skeleton drawing.
Students have been using a continuous line method of drawing the skeleton.
Third graders have been focusing more on the skeleton and less on their drawing as they are building their drawing skills.
This project has required the students to really focus their energy on building their visual and drawing skills.
Here are some examples of the students’ drawings:
Third grade students have been using their new knowledge of contour line and continuous line drawing to create skeleton drawings.
Students have been viewing my full size skeleton named “George” and drawing him.
Everyone has been focusing on the skeleton and trying not to look at their paper as they draw.
The goal of this drawing session was for students to have their pencil move with their eyes while looking at the skeleton’s contour.
This required the third graders to focus and concentrate on their subject.
Students created wonderful drawings for their first attempt at drawing such a large model.
Students worked hard learning and applying new skills to their drawings.
Here are some examples of the students’ work.
