Observational Drawing Scheme of Work

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 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 - I have made it as easy as possible to use!

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

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