In the studio, students in second grade are learning about sketching and how it is an important part of the artistic process. Even though we have begun a painting unit, we are starting out by sketching to help us work out our ideas.

Here are some sketches that we made to try out this technique:
Check out more sketches in the lobby and coming soon outside second grade classrooms!
