Drawing Animals in Graphite – Middle School Art – High School Visual Art Lesson


Product Description

This high school art pencil drawing and shading lesson are great for distance learning, homeschool art, or in the classroom. It works well for intermediate-level art students who have some prior experience with value and shading.


This Drawing Pets and Animals Art Project Includes:

  • A Google Slideshow explaining how to take a good reference photo of a pet or animal with video demonstrations showing how to grid and draw the image
  • Two practice fur drawing worksheets with links to video demonstrations
  • An instructional handout
  • A video demonstrating how to grid the reference photo using Google Slides
  • Extra reference photos in case students can not take their own
  • Rubrics


This drawing pets art project is formatted so it is super easy to share with students digitally through Google Classroom or any other platform your school uses. It is fully editable so you can modify it to fit your needs. The slideshow and videos cover how to shade fur by layering pencil or graphite and creating rich values and tones. You can also modify the medium and use charcoal instead. Students learn how to follow the direction of the fur and create beautiful textures in pencil.


*This project is meant to follow my introduction to value worksheets or any lesson that covers shading and value.


Need an Easy to Follow Art Sub Plan?

The included worksheets work great as sub plans, and early finisher assignments, for students on home instruction or in ISS. They are easy to follow with the linked videos and are easy for substitute teachers or self-directed learning when the art teacher is unavailable.


All of my lessons can be shared with your students through Google Classroom or any digital platform and are formatted to work for distance learning or in the classroom. They are designed to save you time and help your students access the tutorials, presentations, videos, or worksheets as easily as possible. You can find more ready-to-go, easy-to-follow, time-saving art lessons in my RESOURCE SHOP.
