Colour contour drawing, year 7/grade 6
I learnt this technique from a colleague, Sarah Plant and it is one of my favorites. Students love it and you always get interesting and great results. Students start by selecting coloured ink and using a pipette they drop some onto a square piece of paper. Using a straw they blow the ink into different directions and leave to dry. Once dry they use different coloured felt tip pens to follow the contour of their ink splots until the entire square is filled.
