Dawn, I do the observational drawing and stress the the students (2nd -
5th) that this is skill building. The creative part comes after 15 min.
of observational drawing. Their drawing/observational skills have
greatly improved, and there's not the same'fear' of drawing when they;re
asked to draw something imaginary or real. Iam very strict during
observational drawing, tho.

Hi all-

This may seem quite obvious to most of you, but I'm
debating about whether or not to require that
sketchbooks for 6th grade should be based on
observation versus imagination.
