|Warm-Up Activities for Drawing Lesson|
Our class started with a warm-up exercise.
2. Shadow bars each one is darker than the next.
3. Texture like leaves, using shapes like the letter "V" and "W" and similar shapes.
4. A quick drawing of an animal in silhouette.
|2 minute Quick Sketch|
We did a quick sketch challenge of drawing some tennis balls on a napkin. This is done in two minutes
We discussed various lines and how to use them the examples are:
* Straight line
|An example of student's notes on lines in the drawing.|
* Wavy line
* Zig-zag line
* Short or choppy line, (this also is the line used as texture).
* Puzzle piece shaped line, (also using the line as a texture).
Using a variety of lines makes a picture look interesting.
We are encouraging the use of tools such as a ruler to draw a straight line or a compass to draw a circle. After all, we would not have much confidence in a carpenter or mechanic who did not have tools why should an artist be any different?
Examples of line drawings were given from artist work see link: Coloring pages for kids.
Students class work was to draw a scene from a favorite movie or story and to try to incorporate as many lines types as they are able.
Students were allowed to choose a variety of subjects for optional drawing. Including a still life of common household items, pages from travel magazines and clippings of sports figures in play from newspapers. They are encouraged to use a variety of lines in their drawing.
