The purpose of this class is to learn to see as an artist sees and apply that skill to drawing. To be more specific, to recognize the size, shape, position/direction of lines, dots, circles, etc. in a defined space. Read more about this at the Drawing 1a home page: Purpose of Drawing Ia.
The age level of the children using the worksheets on this page is around 8 years old and up. See the link below to print worksheets designed for younger children.
In the lesson format I have taken the practice images from the old set (bottom of page) and placed one different image each in five rows. Each row can represent one day in which the student attempts to draw the practice image three times. Alternatively, the student could be allowed to complete as many rows as time allows or as required by your lesson plan.
In this part I have 32 printable files with lessons and one blank lesson file, each file contains 5 lessons.
Instructions: Each day the student is to draw the same image 3 times. The practice exercises should not take long, depending on the student's interest, one row could take from 5 to 10 minutes. The lessons can be considered warm up exercises for other art lessons such as Drawing with Children.
In this part I have 19 printable files, each with 5 lessons.
Instructions: The student is to draw a reflection of the image four times. In some lessons the first image will have traceable lines that the student may trace. The lessons can be considered warm up exercises for other classes such as Drawing with Children, or for handwriting practice.

Below are text files that one can use to create lesson plans for Drawing Ia and one PDF file that has all of the drawing lessons above spread out over 35 weeks. The TEXT (TXT) files are useful to copy and paste into V Planner and they might be useful for other types of planners that use text files.
Pictured- The 3X a Week Mix - A sequence of both "Lesson" and Mirror drawing lessons spread out over 35 weeks, 3 times a week. There are text files for the 3X a Week Mix below.
TEXT Files - files marked Abr is an abbreviated version of the file.
