LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT I acknowledge, with deep respect, that I am gathered on Treaty 7 territory. I acknowledge the many First Nations, M├ętis and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for generations.

Figure Drawing for Beginners


This is a great way to introduce basic human proportions to middle school students. I was gifted a whole bunch of those wooden mannequins. I've also seen them at IKEA as well as some Dollaramas. 

Grade 4 - 6 students had alot of fun putting the mannequins in different poses then drawing them from observation. I now keep them in a box in the Art room for students to use when they have free time. they really like using them.
