DRAWING WITH SHAPES + FORMS
You can draw anything if you know how to draw basic shapes and forms. The tricky part is the proportions, but that comes with practice!
This week the students learned about the difference between shapes and forms and applied that to drawing a rhino or an elephant. I chose these two animals because we haven't learned about texture or value yet so we needed to eliminate anything with fur or feathers. Once you define the basic shapes that make up an animal, you have to refine the edges to make the animal look more organic and not like it belongs in Lego Land. The students did an exceptional job using a video as a reference and adding value from observation.
