Observational Drawing Samples

Here are samples of observational drawing. Thank you to American Union teacher, Jenny Burrow, for sharing the work of her 7th and 8th graders.

Drawing Tips:
1. Drawings should be of the object only, no background
2. Practice using different types of texture
3. Use drawing pencils without an eraser, it forces your students to slow down and take their time
4. Have the object in front of you, it's about what you see not what you remember
