Introduction to Line Drawing and Mark Making (Animals)

Introduction to Line Drawing and Mark Making

Introduction to Line Drawing and Mark MakingThis unit of work introduces your students to line drawing and marking with animals as a theme.  I would do this in Year 7 where students are aged 11/12. Students complete the following tasks:

  • Creating a title using weight of line.
  • Creating snail line drawings.
  • Researching mark making artists and creating a research page.
  • Drawing, with mark making, a scruffy dog.
  • Using dip pens to create a page of mark making.
  • Creating a dip pen animal drawing.

I guestimate that this would take 9 or 10 lessons of 50 minutes to complete.  The dip pen tasks could be completed with fine liners.  This download includes:

  • An 18 slide PowerPoint pictured above.
  • A three page written unit of work that describes each stage and includes ideas for questioning, homework and an extension activity.
  • A resource sheet of snails to draw.
  • 4 images of animals for the final task.
