Afterwards, I we spent the remainder of class working with guided insturction and I showed them how to draw a portrait in correct proportion
About a week or so from that, the students spent everyday working on a dilation from a photograph
They drew a 1″ grid on a 4×6″ photo, and then enlarged it to a 2 x 2″ grid on a 9 x 12″ piece of a paper.
I was really amazed with the work they pulled off. Check out some of their progress from a pre-skills, to guided to final work in my photo montage video
And now…. for the afternoon students
And here are some pictures of their progress and final work
And don’t forget the lesson plan in case you would want to use this for your art classroom
