RE: First days- HS Art I

One project that I did in drawing that is similar to what you are
suggesting was to have one model. Students would begin drawing and
after 5 minutes would have to move to the next drawing. Everyone worked
on each drawing--sort of a "round robin" exercise. It was great! The
drawings turned out beautifully and even those who were reluctant about
their abilities felt safe enough to really observe and give their best
effort. Students actually begged to keep doing that one.

I was thinking of starting my first day of High School Intro to Drawing
5 minute drawings on large pieces of newsprint and charcoal. One student
would be the model and then after 5 minutes another student would take
the role of the model allowing everyone a chance to draw. I want the
students to start creating the moment they walk in the door!
