Easy Bird Family Lesson for Primary Grades

This is an easy and fun drawing lesson for primary grade students. This was the last lesson I taught as a long term substitute elementary art teacher in the Allentown School District, before I was unfairly blacklisted from full time employment. You can see the easy steps on the right, and I always model the drawing one step at a time so students can follow me, and not feel frustrated. What I loved was the way the students used their imaginations, ( which I encouraged) and gave their birds human traits and personalities by adding hair bows, hats, etc. No "college and career" developmentally inappropriate nonsense allowed in my class! I let little kids be little kids!
