    Tasks:

    Idea Examples: (Don’t limit yourself to the list…expand your vision and just draw…it is the process that helps you become a better artist and above all ENJOY!)

    1. Go outside and draw a tree with all the wonderful textures
    2. Go outside and look up at the clouds rolling by and sketch out what you see in the formations (Look closely as the clouds change and move-what else do you see?)
    3. Go outside and draw your front or your back yard…yes…this is a Landscape!
    4. Not outdoor weather…stay inside and draw your pet (if you have one) while it is sitting still or sleeping
    5. No pet…how about sketch a picture of your sibling or parent
    6. Need something that sits still…set up objects in your room (toys, shoes, cups, even a crumpled pair of socks will make a great subject for observing…etc) - this is a Still Life (because it sits still)
    7. Have a good time Observing your World!
