Directed drawings are great for so many reasons: learning shapes, following directions, practicing hand-eye coordination, developing spatial and size awareness, fine-tuning those fine-motor skills, building vocabulary (I say things like parallel lines and intersect), and building confidence as budding artists. I’ve actually done directed drawings with students in grades kindergarten through grade five, and it tackles all the same skills for older students as it does younger students.
