A drawing lesson by investigating insects

This week we worked on the first half of a lesson about insects. I had an insect specimen for each student to use as a reference. They were so excited to see "real" bugs ;). The insects were a great hook to get them LOOKING while they are drawing. I included references, books and magazines on their tables so they were able to read more about their insect if they wanted to but my real goal was working on their drawing skills, teach them more about line quality and composition. As always, I was very impressed with their engagement!
