This is an observational drawing scheme of work to develop Year 7 students’ drawing skills at the start of the year.

This scheme of learning lookis first at the hyperrealist artist Marcello Barenghi, then students create artist research pages in their sketchbooks and watch YouTube videos of him working. There are teacher notes in the PowerPoint and links to the clips.

Students are shown how to draw from direct observation, bringing in wrappers to draw and understanding how to be inspired by an artist.

Students learn how to control their pencils properly, and start to use key vocabulary such as shape, proportion, detail and tone. There are starter activities, plenaries and homework tasks all in the presentation. There are also printable resources (in the slides)- I have made it as easy as possible to use!

As I teach this to new Y7 students, it is not a long project and students aim for one complete drawing rather than a series. The aim is to have a high quality finished piece.

Students love this project as they can watch the YouTube videos and draw their favourite sweet / crisp wrappers!

This resource includes starters / plenaries etc for the whole project, with examples of students’ work at each stage.

A basic PPT that would lead students to create one observational drawing outcome.
