If you can't tell, my new elementary students are blowing me away with their drawings! 4th and 5th grade started the year creating contour line drawings of their shoes. This is what I did at the beginning of the semester with my high school students and was a little concerned with how these kids would handle it. They LOVED it and couldn't wait to see if their shoe was hanging around the school. We practiced DRAWING WHAT YOU SEE AND NOT WHAT YOU KNOW. This was a challenging project, but everyone left class that week with a little more confidence in themselves and their drawing abilities.
