Blind contour drawings by 5-10 year olds. I wish you could hear the laughter this unleashed! These are created by looking at an object in the room (or a person), and drawing the outline without looking at your paper or lifting your pencil. Contour means outline, but the kids drew the whole object, with some fun and impressive results!
I presented this right after they finished an hour-long structured drawing project. Blind contour drawing is a fun exercise that had them giggling and not agonizing over “getting it right.” I love a project that won’t come out perfect, that takes a real object and makes it a whimsical or abstract version of itself.
