We’re improving, Contour line drawing

For this lesson I asked the art fundamental students to draw a “contour line drawing” of a seashell they picked out of a bin. I didn’t explain what contour line was so I could see what their prior knowledge was. Then we spent a week on learning all about contour line, doing contour line drawings of their hands, feet, backpack, objects, eyes closed, eyes open, upside-down, you name it. For the final lesson students had to bring an object that represent them, hold it in their hand, and complete a semi-continuous contour line drawing of their hand and object. The improvement from the original sea shell drawing was amazing. Check it out:
