Printable Drawing Lessons - Ia
The purpose of this class is stated on the Drawing 1a home page: Purpose of Drawing Ia.
- Before starting this class, have the students draw a self portrait. Supply them with a recent photo or let them look at a digital photo on the computer or a print out of the photo. Keep the self portrait and photograph in a file or portfolio. After doing these lessons for 6-8 weeks, have them redraw the same photograph. Bring out the initial picture that they drew at the beginning of the class and compare the new one to the old one to see what progress has been made.
- Your student does not have to work through all of these sheets to be considered finished with this phase of drawing. You can skip through some the lessons as the student progresses. Upkeep: I had my children do a few every year just to brush up on this particular drawing skill.
- Be sure to visit the Evaluated Work pages to see evaluated work and comments.
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.
The drawing practice sheets below have the same images as the others except these have a different layout.
There are 5 lessons per sheet. 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 they can take from 5 to 10 minutes. The lessons can be considered warm up exercises for other art activities or for handwriting practice.
The practice sheets are listed in order of difficulty. They are all in pdf format.

The old format worksheets are my earliest versions. The lesson format worksheets were created from these.
