Blind Contour Line Drawing

Blind contour line drawings are great warm up exercises, and one of my favorite ways to get kids to slow down and observe their subjects and not their drawings. During last weeks class the kids were drawing each other, it was, however, very tempting for the students to keep checking their drawings and make corrections. This week I'll bring in mirrors to do self portraits using a large paper grocery bag trick. The kids will put their sketch books inside large grocery bags and draw.
