Summer Art (single line drawings)

Single line drawing.

Let's break it down.
Single as in one.
Line as in what happens when you put pen to paper and move your hand.
Drawing as in a picture.

Today we made pictures by putting our pen to paper and drew the whole picture before picking our pen up again.  We practiced first by trying to draw our hands, then moved on to plastic animals.  The big kids (10 year olds) grasped the concept the best but still had to really think about how to add details like eyes and spots on a giraffe.

 We use permanent pens for the drawings and painted over them with watercolors.

Aren't they beautiful!

Now you need to give it a try.
Draw something that is sitting right in front of you.
Remember, don't pick up your pen until you're finished!
