- This is a bundle that I've created with all my favourite stuff from the DRAWING UNIT for high school visual art students.It would work well for distance learning! Many of the projects can be easily adapted to keep your students or children learning and practicing their drawing skills.It includes a m$30.00$55.00Save $25.00
This is a perfect observational drawing project for high school students.
It asks them to use the most simple of all subjects - the APPLE - and do 3 different style drawings.
I love to do this project during fall, and actually go pick apples for them! (it's cheap/exciting) and then they pick their own apple to draw from in class. You could always just have them bring in an apple from home / buy them at the grocery store / even use a photo off their phones...but it works great if they have an actual apple.
Students are asked to do three drawings, making for an awesome final presentation:
1. An observational value drawing of their apple with pencil (using shading techniques)
2. A pencil crayon coloured version of the apple (this builds on the previous skill of looking at value and contrast)
3. A creative version of the apple - using WHATEVER materials they want
(they get amazingly creative with this! Stencils with the actual apple, printmaking, spray paint, sculpture...students love this option!)
I think it's important for students to have lots of choices with projects - and this project is no exception. Plus it opens up some great discussions around materials/learning the rules/learning to break them etc.
I have them mount the final 3 artworks together in one long horizontal or vertical artwork. They look wicked.
Also included is a simple rubric in case you want to include the mark as an assessment.
