1st Grade: A fuzzy feeling

After finishing up our friend portraits, First grade started their lessons on texture. We covered how to draw soft/fuzzy, rough, smooth, and shiny surfaces with pencils, and then started the process with colored pencils. We are currently working on drawing a cat, or a dog, face. The fur is soft, the nose is smooth, and the eyes are shiny. It also gives us a recognizable image to work with when learning about fur. Everyone was encouraged to think about a cat or dog that they have seen in the past and how their fur goes in certain directions. By following the direction of the fur growth, they can make their pictures look more realistic.
