K-2 Sketchbook Design & Exploration with M. V. Moran: Lesson 4

LIVE on Wednesday, February 10th at 9am

Program Description

Students will begin to utilize their sketchbook as they build a practice involving exploration, experimentation, and self-guided challenge. This third drawing challenge returns to observational drawing as we take on an object with more detail and color. Students will select a favorite stuff animal, toy, or other nearby object they love and recreate it as a drawing. This lesson encourages students to pay close attention to detail as they recreate the object in their own style.
