This week and next week the 3rd and 4th graders, will be drawing form observation. I set up a still life in the middle of the room. We talked about sketching, looking, view finders, observing, and not second guessing yourself. So far it has been a blast. I am so impressed with our drawing skills and imagination.
I encouraged the students to pick at least 2 objects to draw (mostly more than that) and then they could create their own background, such as, a wallpaper designs, outside design, a window, etc. These photos below are works in progress, to be finished next week!
