Since we have been working on drawing the face for our self portrait rainbow mural, I thought I would teach them how to make the body. I wanted them to observe how the arms and legs bend because of knees and elbows. I did this with first,second, and third grade.
This was the little guide we used. I told them to look at all the details of their little man.
They outlined it with green Crayola markers and painted with water
The older kids had to draw two figures in the foreground and background and overlap them.
They could draw camouflage or an American flag in the background with chalk pastels
