Hi everyone, About drawing--I just had my fifth grade classes do a still
life drawing that I thought would appeal to them--clothes hung on a
hanger, jeans, a vest, a shirt and a hat in a pocket. They had to do a
contour drawing first then add shading. The kids hated it--my question
is why? I think the answer is they don't spend enough time drawing to
get good at it and I encouraged them to draw for 10-15 minutes each
night. The concept I was trying to teach was to really draw well, one
must really look at the model. Help, tell me what I am doing wrong
here. I have decided to start their classes with a short still life
drawing for a while--drawing for about 15 minutes then moving on to the
lesson of the day. Good idea or overkill? Looking forward to your
ideas and comments, Carol
