Art Lesson - Drawing the Human Figure

This is a stand-alone art lesson that helps to teach students how to draw the correct proportions of the human figure. This is an introduction to figure drawing, which can be used in a bigger scheme of work looking at the human figure, or it can be used as a cover lesson.

This lesson can be used with KS3 or KS4 students and can be easily differentiated. It includes 3 main activities (starter - main - plenary) and can be taught by a non-specialist. It has clear learning objectives and an extension.

It encourages students to look carefully at the proportions of the human body.

I have made this lesson as I was unable to find a quick one-off lesson that was not just focused on drawing. This lesson has different activities to keep students engaged.

Any teacher would be able to deliver the lesson, you just need to make a photocopy of one of the resources attached to the PowerPoint.
