Puppy shading


This is a simple shading exercise and the kids loved it!

Supplies:

A cute puppy picture in black and white :)
Glue
Scissors
Pencils

What you do:
Cut an image down the center and glue on half to a sheet of drawing paper. With the other half of the photo, turn it over and rub graphite on the back covering the image. Line the graphite backed image back up with the original and using a pencil, trace the outline of the puppy. This will give students a outline of the other half and allow them to focus more on the shading rather than the "drawing" aspect. It took the pressure off and allowed them to really perfect the shading.
