Line is considered the beginning of most art. This is a unit you can use with your students to give them a jumping off point on how to use their line drawing to create something! This pdf contains vocabulary related to the unit on contour drawing, jobs for your students to help them learn to clean up behind themselves, a short article and questions related to contour drawing, an exercise to help them learn the art of contour drawing, a description of how to complete their contour drawing project and a grading rubric. This packet allows you to complete a whole unit on contour drawing. I recommend using it with 7th grade. In the end, the student will complete a drawing of a stool, and then are encouraged to show their individual creativity in the way they decorate that stool. I hope you enjoy teaching this unit to your students as much as I enjoy teaching it to mine!
