Have you every tried an upside-down drawing?
What happens in your brain is that instead of naming each part that you are drawing, your brain focuses more on the lines and shapes that you are drawing. Eliminating the name of what you are drawing helps you draw what you see not what you think you see. Sometimes your brain can get in the way!! Have your students try this and you might be blown away at how well they can draw!
This set uses a knight and dragon theme that will fit well into a Medieval or Fairytale picture. Put a castle in the background and you are all set!
I’ve made a range of difficulty in this set so that you can differentiate or use with a variety of age levels.
This idea of drawing upside-down has been around for a while and was made popular by Betty Edwards in her book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain
Your students will:
• Draw a step-by-step upside-down dragon.
• Draw a side-by-side upside-down dragon.
• Draw an upside down knight using symmetry.
• Draw a side-by-side upside-down knight.
