Leo or Leona the Lion

Ashley Robinson, 1st Grade, Sacred Hearts Academy
Academy 1st graders are learning to “draw from reference,” which means looking at a picture carefully, and drawing what you see. Students practiced using their knowledge of the different line families to determine what type of line to draw next: straight, curved or angled.

Next, they used their imagination to create a more realistic or imaginary setting for the lion. Some really show off their sense of humor by including details like the lions underwear hanging on a hanger in their room, or a heavenly lion on cloud wearing a halo.

Drawings were colored in with markers, and oil pastel for the background. They experimented with using the side of the oil pastel to create a bumpy texture, coloring like a crayon or “smudging”  it for a softer look.
