contour line drawings...

Fifth graders love this project because they get to be the "models." Since this concept is so abstract for this age, some have a hard time grasping the idea. Although, the final projects still turn out awesome!
Before the students do a final drawing on a 24x36" paper, they have to do a series of smaller ones. I choose students to come on up to sit on the stool, that is way up on the counter, and pose for the rest of the class for about 7 minutes. The final project is done by choosing a partner and posing for them and vise-versa. Using oil pastels and watercolor, the students must only choose three colors to use for the whole project.
