Art Spotlight: Glue and Pastel Contour Line Drawings


Addy LaFontaine

7th grade art students started the quarter out practicing observational drawing using contour lines. On black construction paper, students drew their hands and added glue over the lines to create a raised surface.

Students looked at the unique shapes created and filled the spaces with colored chalk pastel leaving the glue lines as the contour. Students used warm and cool colors to make their designs pop out.
