1st and 2nd Graders have been practicing Contour Line Drawing.
Students practiced drawing themselves and their neighbors, by observation.
We looked at contour drawings by artist, Alexander Calder.
A contour line is a continuous line that represents the edges of the shapes we see or observe.
The drawing should not have a beginning or an end because it is made with one long line.
We had a lot of fun and the room was filled with giggles, because the end result is different than we usually draw ourselves.
