Contour Line Drawing

ContourOne of the most annoying beliefs about drawing is that people either have a gift or they don’t. The truth is drawing is a skill, and just like anything else, anyone can get better with practice.

1. With a journal or drawing paper, students to traced their hands in pencil. Unusual placement and cropping was encouraged.
2. Students use either a thin marker or pen and draw in as many line details as they can (nails, wrinkles, etc.)
3. Lastly they chose a line pattern and completely fill in the background. The goal is to have them get into a kind of “doodle” trance, which is a great place to be!
