"A Faithful Attempt" is designed to showcase a variety of K-12 art lessons, the work of my art students, as well as other art-related topics. Projects shown are my take on other art teacher's lessons, lessons found in books or else designed by myself.
Thanks for visiting!
LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT I acknowledge, with deep respect, that I am gathered on Treaty 7 territory. I acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for generations. I respect the histories, languages and cultures all the Indigenous peoples of Canada, whose presence continues to enrich our community.

Leaves Observational Drawings

Autumn is starting here where I live in Canada. It's the perfect time to go outside with a class and gather some leaves to draw.  My Grade 4-6 students practiced observational drawing with their leaves.

I turn off all the lights in my room and just use the lighting from the window. You can also light with a lamp if you have one. Have them focus on creating a contour drawing first, then start shading. 
The materials we use are drawing pencils, blending stumps and kneaded erasers (I only use the Faber Castell brand!).

This student sprinkled water on hers as she wanted dew drops.
