Skeleton ink drawings

After learning about contour drawing, students attempted a still life with skulls, bones and flowers.  On the last project, students used markers and water and a brush to create realistic shading.  They are using the same technique on bones to give them value and shading!  This is a link to another art teacher who has a wonderful lesson and examples of high school students working out the same process.

    1. Interestingly enough, Today is the day we brought the box of bones back out again for the next semester! Wonderful timing! Thanks for sharing your lessons.
