This past week, 4th and 5th graders took a closer look at their shoes and drew them from observation. First, we took off one shoe and put it on the table in front of us, so we could look at it as we drew. We focused on getting the shape or contour of the shoe first.
Then looked at all the details in the shoe and thought about how to represent them using lines and shapes.
Some of our shoes, especially the athletic sneakers, had a lot of detail, including many different shapes and textures. We also thought about the shadow that the shoe made on the table.
