To do this owl drawing, I demonstrated each step on the board and the students would follow my lead to create their own drawing. I would start by telling them and showing them to draw two large circles towards the top of the paper. Next, draw two smaller circles inside of each large circle. Those are the eyes....and on and on for the whole drawings.
There are some art teachers who are against this sort of art teaching because they think that the student is simply "copying" the teacher rather than creating something of their own imagination. I, on the other hand, find that this sort of project once in a while allows students to create something that they are very proud of and would probably not have otherwise been able to draw on their own. I've also witnessed that after teaching students these types of step-by-step drawings they begin to draw their own outside of class with adjustments to make it more unique.
After finishing the line drawing, students colored in their owls with colorful construction paper crayons and outlined their contour lines to really make the owls pop.
The Kindergarten students seemed to really love drawing these owls and the results are truly adorable!
