Reviewing Drawing Techniques in HS

A Quick Warm Up

30 second gestures.

During class today, the students reviewed some basic drawing techniques which, when combined, helps us achieve accurate observational drawings.



The Task

We began with some quick figure gestures followed with: blind, contour, negative shape, kinesthetic and observational drawing skills. These all help us to REALLY see.

The final task today, was to draw a shoe four times whilst applying what we have learnt. The students had to demonstrate their understanding of: blind, contour, and kinesthetic. Then they combined all techniques in a final detailed shoe drawing. Here are some of the results. Well done F1E this is a great start. Next class will be upside down drawing and grids.
