mannequin Drawings

Ninth grade Studio Art students created these drawing from observation. Students
first posed these figures and created a series of sketches using sighting methods
to help guide them in proportion and angle of the models.

Students then took their best drawings and arranged them in a pleasing composition
where emphasis, repetition, space and movement were to be considered. Next,
students learned to shade the basic forms (sphere, cone, and the cylinder) using
both graphite and charcoal pencils.

Finally, students shaded their final drawings using either graphite pencil, or white
& black charcoal pencil. The objective was to use value shading to create the
illusion of three-dimensional form on a two-dimensional surface.

Media: graphite pencils, charcoal pencils, and pastel.
