Essential Question: Why is individual perception so important in observational drawing?
Careful observation produces increased skills of perception and understanding. Arts instill the foundation needed for decision making, problem solving, visualizing, and thinking creatively. Through exploring different lines and techniques with pencils and other medium students will develop the craft of observation and express their knowledge in drawing.
