Studio Art: Contour drawing

In Studio Art class today we learned the basics of contour line drawing along with continuous-line contour drawing, and blind contour drawing.  We started by drawing our own hands and we'll continue with more subjects this week.  The video above give some additional insight on the drawing style if you had any difficulty understanding.  Tomorrow we'll expand on the technique and look specifically at the silhouettes of the objects.  Below is a really great contour line drawing done by a student a few years ago of another classmate in my classroom.
