These teaching resources stemmed from a passion for drawing and for writing that I have polished throughout many years of teaching experience. I am daring now to bring a small but novel contribution to the way children learn to draw. Thank you for skimming this resources and in case you liked them, thank you for buying them.

Learn Outlining On a Triangular Grid

When it comes to drawing, there are very few innately talented children. We do acknowledge that drawing is not only for them. All the other children will need to learn how to draw, whatever object or animal or human they want, or what the lesson in hand requires them to. Among various techniques that teach pupils the art of drawing, this one stands out by simply offering a background for the lines that are to be traced. Asking a child to replicate let say the swan, on a page with a background made up of aligned up triangles, is a prerequisite to drawing it with free hand. And that is what happens: the second drawing on a blank page will be a perfect embodiment of a real swan. Why? Because the child has been given directions in the background that taught him spatial rationality. Take this patterns herein given and teach the children to draw easily and rapidly . Thank you for choosing our resources, please enjoy drawing every single pattern. We did enjoy making them for all the children that learn now how to draw.

This innovative drawing technique helps pupils of all ages learn a new perspective of seeing the world of drawing, not only because it makes drawing really easy, but also because it is innovative. Spatial reasoning and logic development is one of the benefits that is not expected to come out from drawing images on a honeycomb background. It is that what happens though. Translated to another subject, this technique enable a great preparation base for the first step in design, with a mark on the ease of getting results the children expose after performing few drawings.

This innovative drawing technique helps pupils of all ages learn a new perspective of seeing the world of drawing whilst making drawing really easy. The technique is meant to deepen pupils design knowledge and the drawing abilities they develop in school. Adding these pages to their sketchbooks will enhance the drawing variety because of a diverse 2D repeated shapes background, which was used to draw images on. This technique is all about creating new images following a pattern by using the background as an aid to set contour lines and to follow directions. Apart from enabling image contour, the technique gives the possibility of counting and painting joined-up shapes one by one until the whole image is completed. Why a technique that involves duplicating drawing patterns is useful for children? This drawing technique is highly beneficial because it enhances the pupils spatial reasoning while deepening the logic needed to determine and color specific shapes on the page by counting them. Each page has a pattern drawn on top and half a page free, space where the children will replicate that pattern. With a huge hope that the children loved this art of producing images as much as I do, I would like to thank you for using it.

An old drawing technique has now been improved by with another 22 square grid drawings. This is the niche in the KS1 Art Curriculum where these drawings fit to be used: Ar1/1.3 to develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space Benefits for children: spatial reasoning increase in preparation for learning to draw and understand shapes and Geometry; drawing skills development which prepare children to draw independent compositions; accurate learning of a line drawing technique, through tracing directions given by a series of small squares; aesthetic sense development; Tips: Children to chose the page they like most, then count squares starting on a page corner or margin up to one point of the picture. From that point, children to trace similarly all the lines that the pattern exposes, until the drawing is completed. It helps to pay attention what direction each line should be straighten to. Colouring the new image helps the children enjoy even more the result they have obtained. On the blank square grid pages given at the and of this series, the children may draw their own compositions.

These worksheets enable children to build up drawing abilities in a manner that resemble the play of a drawing game. While improving really fast the spatial rationality, the children will also notice that it is fun and easy to use this background to replicate the given patterns or to render images creatively. Useless is to say what is quite obvious: beautiful artwork surfaces following the endeavor undertaken to draw on an angular grid. There is so much to gain in skills and spatial logical orientation from practicing drawing on these 12 worksheets. Thank you for using them.

This technique is all about creating new images following a pattern by using the background as an aid to set contour lines and to follow directions. Apart from enabling image contour, the technique gives the possibility of counting and painting joined-up shapes one by one until the whole image is completed. This drawing technique enhances the pupils’ spatial reasoning while deepening the logic needed to determine and color specific ovals on the page by counting them. Each page has a pattern drawn on top and same kind half a page free, space where the children will replicate that pattern.

Colouring on Joined-up Circles

(0)
Teaching experience has shown that small children and more skilled at drawing pupils alike enjoy drawing on joined-up circles. On this background, compositions come to live much faster whilst it enables a variety of images to be depicted. Once the pupils tried it out and replicate certain patterns using a crammed with circles page, it will come much easier to them to draw the same images using free pencil on a blank page. The technique also gives the children interested in drawing, opportunities to develop aesthetic sense.
