Here are some ideas for drawing with Pre-K and Preschool children.
Black Ink & Colored Pencil
Children drew a representation of a snake with a fine point black ink pen, drawing the outline and adding details. They had small models of snakes to look at while they drew. Later, these were colored in with colored pencils.
Children sat outside with clipboard and paper to draw a tree in each season.
We first went on a leaf hunt around the school grounds to collect leaves. Children studied the leaves with magnifying glasses, and drew pictures of different leaves with a fine-point black ink pen. I chose one leaf drawing from each child, scanned it, enlarged it on the computer, and printed them out on white art paper. I printed several copies for each child. The children decorated the leaf copies with different materials: watercolor paints, tempera paints, fine point colored pens, markers, and colored pencils.
Children drew a pen and ink self-portrait while looking at a photograph of themselves.
