3rd Grade Observational Drawing and Printmaking

posted on October 31, 2017 in Fall 2017, Student Teacher Blog

Third grade went outside with drawing boards to practice drawing either cityscapes or landscapes from observation. We talked about the windshield wiper method of looking back and forth between the paper and the subject you are observing. It was so nice to get the kids outside and I think they really did better when they had a limited number of materials. Giving them only pencils definitely worked better than having markers and pencils.

The next class, we turned our observational drawings into printing plates and got ready for printmaking!
