Drawing was our class topic today. We started sketching a running shoe without lifting our pencil off the paper too often. I was hoping to loosen the students up, however, while some students found it enjoyable others found it frustrating. Our next project was a still life. I set up two vases and a bowl and had them draw what they saw, training their eye to look at shapes, heights and widths . Then we worked on shading. Though not a hi-lite with the kids, I was pleased with their finished drawings.
