Bell Work

Simple Sketches

Place various objects in the middle of your students' tables such as a plant, a globe, a stuffed animal, an open book, etc. Have them sketch the object from their point of view. This will help students to get used to drawing if you do this regularly. You can talk about the importance of spontaneity in artwork-everything doesn't have to be "perfect" to be good!
