Sketching animals
a quick lesson to show children how to use a grid to draw pictures. The grid can help with sizing and spacing. children can be taught to use pencil in different ways to use a variety of lines, shading, pencil type, smudging etc... to add detail. This theme was animals but grid method can be used with any picture. After lots of practise children's ability to judge size and form will improve. have added some cartoon animal and pencil sketch animal images for children to select from if wished.
