This beginner line drawing art lesson will fit in beautifully to your middle or high school art curriculum. This simple ready-to-go drawing project contains everything needed to get started right away.

Using the x grid method of drawing and the included reference images, practice worksheet, video demonstrations, and rubrics, students learn how to scale an image and draw using simple guide marks. This is a perfect first drawing project as it builds the foundation for other drawing skills and students learn the fundamentals of drawing and build confidence in their observational drawing skills.

The completed artwork is done on approximately 8x8 drawing paper with pencil and fine point black sharpie or liner markers. The final projects look great as a display and students are always proud of their work.

Included are:

  • 10 handouts with different gridded reference images, rubrics, and links to a video demonstration. Both PDF and Google Slide formats are included to save time and fit your classroom needs.
  • Practice worksheet with video demonstration.
  • Google Slideshow explaining how to add color to drawings.
  • Rubrics
  • Teacher Instructions
  • 2 different video demonstrations

The drawing reference photos vary in complexity so you can assign them to different students based on their own level of ability.

This art lesson is great as a first project in an introduction to art class or and s a refresher for more seasoned artists. Contour line drawing helps build observational drawing skills and is also frequently the framework that artists use to begin more complex detailed drawings. This drawing technique is incredibly valuable as it sets students up to build on these concepts.

All of my lessons can be shared with your students through Google Classroom or any digital platform. You can find more of my art lessons in my TPT shop here:
