Contour Drawing

2012-2013 Q3 Contour Cup Display

6th Grade students started the new quarter by creating timed contour drawings of a cup.  This may seem like a simple task but students were asked to draw continuous as well as blind contour drawings where they were unable to pick up their pencil or look at their paper while drawing.  Drawings ranged from 2 minutes to 5 seconds!

This exercise is done to help students improve their hand-eye coordination when drawing.
