Product Description
Planning a drawing out to take proportion into consideration is a difficult concept for some students to grasp. This one day project will help students who want to draw the details first see the difference between a draw-the-details-first picture and one when they plan out the proportions and overall composition first. The PowerPoint leads students through both types of drawing, and at the end they will compare both of their pictures. Most students will see improvement when they take the time to plan out their drawings ahead of time and think about proportion.

The painting students will draw is Sofonisba Anguissola’s Queen Elizabeth of Spain. Sofonisba was one of the few famous female Italian Renaissance artists. (She is also classified as a Mannerist.) She was a painter during a time when there weren't many artists. Use this lesson as part of a unit on Renaissance artists or on its own as a drawing activity.

There is no preparation necessary for this Sofonisba Anguissola art lesson plan.

This download includes a PDF lesson plan to print and a PowerPoint with slide notes to promote discussion and assist the instructor.
