5th Grade Native American Figure Drawing

As part of our district wide Native American unit this year, we are combining our 5th grade Native American studies with figure drawing in art. We reviewed what we knew already about Native Americans and added to that knowledge by reading some books and watching some youtube clips. We talked about the art genre of figure drawing and drew Native American dancers!

Learning Goals:
Students can create a figure drawing with correct proportions
Students can add detail and pattern
Students can blend warm colors in the background
Students can use pictographs to create a story in the background

  1. What a terrific lesson! I would love to know more about how you taught drawing the figure in proportions. How many class meetings did this project take?
