With regard to your drawing group, that is quite a range (grades 1-8)! Bunki
is right, it doesn't matter how you progress through the various elements,
just understand that each age will interpret it from their developmental
viewpoint. Several good books: Observational Drawing by Nancy Smith and the
Drawing Group; Drawing with Children by Mona Brooks; also by Mona Brooks -
Drawing with Older Children and Teens. In our classes, we talk about three
kinds of drawing: observation (something you can see right now), memory
(something real that you can't see right now) and imagination (fantasy). Very
young children can distinguish between these three groups, and that each kind
of drawing has its place and purpose. Good luck!
