PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Drawing people, like all drawing, starts with observation.

The three lessons in this packet use three different techniques for drawing people. Two of the lessons -- Whimsical People and Gesture People -- are inspired by artist Keith Haring. They are fun and fanciful with a focus on shape, contour, color, and movement. The third lesson -- Observation Drawing: People -- leads students through steps that help them look at shapes of clothing, directions of lines, and the attention to proportion that is essential for a reasonably realistic drawing.

Observation drawing can help children become more comfortable drawing realistic people instead of stick figures. With these lessons, children can learn how to observe and draw people with personality. They won’t need to ever draw stick figures again!

Each of the lessons includes the following:

- a list of art concepts and skills addressed
- a list of materials needed
- targeted art and related vocabulary
- detailed steps for introducing the lesson
- directions for the art activity itself
- ideas for extending or varying the lesson
- ideas for looking at and discussing art
- ideas for connecting the activity to other curricular areas
- at least one writing extension

Because I teach in California, each lesson also includes a list of the California Visual Arts Standards addressed for suggested grade levels. Please note that listed grade levels are suggestions only; any of these lessons can be simplified or made more complex to work for any elementary grade.

Also included in the packet is the url for my blog, Creating Art With Kids, where readers can find detailed descriptions and helpful tips about the process of teaching many of my art lessons.


********PLEASE NOTE********
Each of the lessons in this bundle is also available individually.


For more art-making ideas and suggestions:
Start With Art -- perfect for back-to-school
Making Time For Art -- a free download

Art Task Cards -- for early finishers or art centers

•••

Creating Art With Kids lessons are designed to focus primarily on the creative process. They are intended to be open-ended enough to encourage student creativity and detailed enough to give teachers clear direction.

Enjoy!

Thank you, Christy, for taking time to leave feedback. This combination of lessons offers a variety of treatments for the human form, and hopefully will help move students away from stick figures. Thanks for shopping in my store!

Hi bonnelic.... You're right! These **are** fun! Kids love them! The Whimsical People and Squiggly People are great for introducing *bodies* to kids who've been drawing stick people, and then the actual people drawing lesson teaches them to pay attention to shapes and details. Thanks for shopping in my store.... and have fun!

Thank you for your support, debmainiero, and thanks for using Art With People! I am hoping that those who use this lesson will extend the learning about drawing people into other areas, like illustrating student-written books. There really is no need for stick people!

Such a great addition to my art program!
On  March 29, 2013Renee Goularte Share2Learn answered:
Hi gomima.... I am sad when I see students draw stick people because stick people have no personality and, to me, they exhibit laziness. I actually tell students that drawing stick people is lazy. It's so easy to draw people, especially for kids!
