My third graders last quarter studied how to draw a face. Now they're taking that information and applying it to a drawn self portrait, showing emotion. In the first lesson, they looked at a mirror and drew their image while making a face showing emotion.
These were well rendered, I thought.
There were drawings whose skill levels were at the opposite end of the spectrum as well. It baffles me from time to time how there can be such a great chasm in skill in one class. But, I guess that's how life is on every front.
