B&W Contour Line Feather Study

Here is a quick one day activity to practice (or evaluate) contour line drawing. I taught this lesson at the elementary level as well during my student teaching, now to high school students. It seems to be successful at any level, and it's fun! Basic instruction: start with contour shape, and then find the lightest lights, and darkest darks, as well as the texture and "weight" of the feather. These are black and white charcoal pencil.
