I print these on strips and keep a tub of them in my room. Any time students finish early they can choose a prompt the tub and complete it. They've relayed helped make free draw more meaningful and sustained!
I've even created an entire visual journaling unit using them with more mixed media. The kids love it and really take ownership when their work is compiled into a handmade journal.
• "Draw the most beautiful thing you've ever seen"
• "Imagine humans have colonized the moon. Draw your ultimate moon house."
