This handout goes with the Cross Contour Animal Drawing Project for high school visual arts students.
The PDF project is available here:
This graphite drawing project is challenging and excellent for more advanced students.
This PDF handout includes:
-Vocabulary & Picture Examples
-3 Student Examples
-Basic Project Steps
-Rubric based on the project being 150 points
This handout is nice to have so students have access to a printed copy of the whole project. They can easily look back at the vocabulary terms while they are answering the reflection questions.
Instead of asking, "What do I do next?" Students can glance at the basic project steps and even cross them off as they go.
After grading their projects you can give them a copy of their rubric so that they can see exactly which areas they need to improve on.
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.
