This week the homework will center on drawing activities.
The activities are appropriate for K-3, except as noted. Feel free to
copy, cut and paste the assignments into your own word processor for sending
home (or print this page).
Choose one member of your family to draw. Have them pose in a position which is a favorite of the subject (sitting, running, etc.) Draw that person as best you can.
Select one object in the house that has more than 3 colors. Draw and color the object, but alter the colors from the real ones.
Make a list of all the words you can think of that relate to drawing. You should be able to think of twelve if you are k-1 and 25 if second or third grade.
Find a book or illustration that teaches you how to draw. Bring it to school tomorrow ready to teach someone how to draw an object from the book.
