What material is made of?
What shape/ size it's got?
How big the different parts are?
Then, children have to draw in front of something, it can be a landscape, buildings or simply objects in the classroom. A good idea can be to teach students not to use rubber all the time and use the pencil in a smooth way at the beginning, drawing over and over until they get what they want. (Usually children rub more than draw)
1st activity is:
- to draw their shoe/trainer or boot. They don't have to paint them but they can use tones and textures using graffiti and chalk pencils.
2nd activity is:
- Draw the school. Students leave the classroom to observe and draw the school. They choose what to draw and they do it directly. They can't use rubber at the beginning and they just add line, tone and texture to the drawing. They don't correct or finish it after that. They do sketches of the school.
3rd activity is:
- Draw objects made of different materials: wood, glass, ceramics,metal...They choose what to draw, minimum of two things and place them in the paper. They are not going to paint, so they can use graffiti, chalk and pencils.Not rubber! (Difficult, for children, to understand but a practical technique to learn).
