Drawing on the Right Side Anyone?
All of my students get practice in observational drawing but 5th graders get the
Betty Edwards treatment!
Betty Edwards is an artist and teacher who developed unique drawing exercises connected to right/left brain research that can enable anyone to draw. All you have to do is find your R-Mode and let it do it’s thing!
With my 5th graders, we start the year by creating a Vase Face; an exercise in drawing that gets students focused on drawing what they see, rather than what they think they see.
Check out the official
to create your own Vase Face and to learn more!
