This was an excellent contour shoe drawing lesson I found on The Art of Ed website HERE.
I used this as a sub lesson when I was away for a conference recently. I left it for Grades 4-9. It was perfect because it only needed minimal supplies and no mess for the sub! The younger grades said it was 'really hard' and my Grade 7-9 students had no problem at all with it. I feel like all the students did really well with it nonetheless!
They started with an observational drawing of their shoe on regular copy paper.
Then they outlined their shoe in Sharpie.
Then they broke up the background into large sections and drew a pattern in each one.
The background was coloured using markers.
I love the Crayola Tropical series.
