Castle Drawings


My Grade 9's recently completed their castle illustrations. I gave them a handout showing the different elements of a medieval castle (turrets, towers, arrow slits, draw-bridge, etc) and showed them a slideshow of famous castles in Europe for more inspiration. They could use any media they wish- most used pencil, markers, coloured pencil and watercolours.

Some like to look up reference photos on their laptops (I have a love-hate relationship with laptops in the classroom....)


Others printed out photo reference...

Nice example of a practice drawing in a sketchbook...


Starting the good copy....


Ta da!
