Measuring like and Artist--Student Handout

Measuring like and Artist--Student Handout
Word Document File (189 KB|1 page)


Handout for students who are learning to measure for drawing, life drawing, painting, etc. The 3 methods include:

  • Using a pencil to set an angle.
  • Using a pencil and your thumb to measure how many "heads" long the subject matter is.
  • Plum line

Great supplementary handout for students with longer processing. Perfect compliment to a lesson on drawing proportions. Techniques are most appropriate for ages 13+, but can be fun in drawing lessons starting at 4th grade.
