Buttons! Buttons! Buttons!

The 6th graders always start the trimester with about a week of button drawing. We begin with them sketching buttons without my help, so I can see where they are coming from. The next 3 days we start class with me demonstrating different skills that will help them improve (value, making the drawing look 3-D, sketching details, etc.). It's amazing how much they learn and how far they come in just a week!

  1. Brilliant- I would never have thought of using buttons for a still life. The best part is they are small and easy to store! lol
    Thanks for sharing- your kids did a wonderful job.
