It was one of those days when some of the kids were busy finishing up their work and some others had completed theirs. I introduced to these kids the idea of a blind contour as an exercise in building eye-hand coordination. Looking into a mirror, the kids started drawing themselves without looking down at their paper. Of course this was kind of a challenge for them and so we decided to poke our pencil through a paper plate and draw so that the plate would block our vision and they could draw blind.
After making multiple portraits, some overlapping, they looked at the paper and were amused and delighted at the results. We decided to work on some of the spaces with brightly coloured felt tip pens and here are the results.
