The Statue of Liberty

Today we read about the Statue of Liberty and drew Statue of Liberty portraits. We did this as a directional drawing activity. My students followed my step by step directions using a pencil. Then we traced the pencil lines with a black sharpie. Then we water-colored the portraits and cut them out.




A few great read-alouds about the Statue of Liberty...

Do you have any specific instructions on the directional drawings? I love this!

I agree with Diana. I'd love to hear more about how you did the directional drawings or what resources.

I started by having students draw a line across the top part of their paper. This line is the top of her head and the bottom of her crown. Then I had students draw a "u" to make the rest of her face. From there I modeled how to draw one feature of the face at a time. After I drew the feature, I had my students draw it. Then I moved onto the crown and the hair. I did all of this using an ELMO. I drew the line and then had them do it. I hope this helps.

Love these!
Two questions:
--What kind of paper did you use?
--Who cut these out, the kids or an adult?
