I taught this Cross Contour Animal Drawing Project last spring to my high school visual arts students.
This graphite drawing project is challenging and excellent for more advanced students.

-11 Student Examples
-Basic Project Steps
-Rubric based on the project being 150 points
I made a five page handout that goes with this project. The handout is available here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Cross-Contour-Animal-Drawing-Project-Handout-2621538
The project can take anywhere from two weeks to one month based on how much class time you have and the students artistic levels.
I did not put specifics for what type and size of paper to use so that also will change the teaching duration.
My students completed this lesson with graphite and colored pencil. Your students could use Sharpie or black permanent markers in place of graphite.
