“Drawing is rather like playing chess: your mind races ahead of the moves that you eventually make.” – David Hockney
All K-8th grade students in one way shape or form have completed an observational or still life drawing in Art class. The 4th and 5th graders used their favorite shoes as the subject matter.
This project provides a time for the students to slow down, observe, and draw! It is a standard preliminary project for developing an art portfolio at any age. It gave students the confidence, new awareness, and concentration through focus, which school requires. The students did a fantastic job and wanted to share!
