Foreshortening with 2/3s

Inspired by Lines, Dots and Doodles.

Getting to the end of the year and students are starting to feel a bit restless. It’s time to start the ‘clean’ projects! Get out the drawing supplies! I try to save most of the drawing projects for last and do all the messy stuff mid year.

For this project, 2nd and 3rd graders copied their hands and feet and drew their bodies so it looked like their bodies were farther away and their hands and feet were really close to the viewer. We learned this drawing technique is called foreshortening.

This one looks like a Simpson’s character!

With all of them up on the wall together, it looks like they are trapped in the school walls forever! No summer for you!
