This is an excellent lesson plan on basic drawing beginning with learning to draw with geometric shapes, discovering shading techniques and creating texture. This is a complete lesson plan that is applicable to all grade levels from 6th grade to 12th grade. This lesson is perfect for introducing drawing at a beginners level and it provides the worksheets and samples as well.
This lesson contains all that a good art teacher needs to begin teaching on drawing along with the National Standards in Art that it fulfills. Because it is produced in a Word document any teacher can own the lesson for themselves and tweak it to their own lesson plan notebook.
I have taught this lesson plan for 9 years and find it to be most successful on all age levels.
