Eighth graders were introduced to multiple exercises that help artists to draw successfully from observation. Examples of these include, upside down drawing, blind contour drawing, and value scales. For the final assignment, students selected a shoe of their choice and began by creating a contour line drawing, focusing on the overall silhouette of the shoe and its key shapes. Later, shading was added to the contour drawing, bringing the image to life.
