[teacherartexchange] Gr.6 Art, blind contour


Date: Tue Sep 14 2010 - 19:27:40 PDT

I forgot to mention. I tried blind contour drawing with my grade 8s last
year. They loved it when I asked them to draw from each other's face! I
demonstrated on the board. Teaching them HOW to look for the edges is
difficult, a few got it and using their drawings as exemplar helped. This
got alot of giggles and fun, and some silly drawings that were obviously
cartoons and not blind contours. But it loosened them up and gave them a
focus quickly.

Once the joke is over, we moved onto grass in a glass jar. We got some
nice drawings...
