Abstract

Drawing from observation and visual perception skills are valued in many fields: science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. Contemporary practices in the arts and education in k-12 have shifted the focus away from teaching these skills, resulting in a rehashing of concepts, styles and imagery that stymie creativity and development of more advanced visual arts. To address the need for increased observation and visual perception skills in today’s students, a modified approach to art and drawing education is needed. Aligned to standards, a drawing curriculum has been designed for high school art students to more effectively cultivate these skills.
