Five Methods to Teach Drawing Skills

For most students, their Art 1 class at the junior high level is their first exposure to a "formal" art class. To fit their developmental level, I believe in using five methods to teach drawing skills:

1. Drawing from two-dimensional reference pages (model pages).

2. Drawing using principles of One, Two, and Three-Point Perspective.

3. Drawing using the "Grid System."

4. Drawing from still-life objects.

5. Drawing from imagination.
