aka Teaching Art for Non Art Teachers!
This PPT includes handouts as well as teacher & student instructions. Students are led through a 3 day activity sequence, demonstrating and providing practice in a strategy that shows them how to illustrate professional looking characters without any previous drawing experience or talent. By the end of the 3 days, students are able to create original illustrated characters, empowering them to feel like artists who know how to draw.
This lesson series would be perfect as part of a project that includes drawing components, especially in a situation where the teacher does not feel confident teaching students how to draw. The series could also be a great stand-alone lesson series at the beginning of a beginner's art class.
