Gr. 8 Figure Drawings: Celebrities and Characters
In this unit, students in Gr. 8 practiced drawing a minimum of 4 figures of their choice. We studied gesture drawing techniques and use of scientifically-based human proportion for both bodies and faces to achieve realism. Research and observational drawing skills were used to add realistic and believable details to bring the figures to life. Some students incorporated shading and highlighting with professional artist pencils and white charcoal.
