Joel Hickerson, grindog.com. I'm going to teach you an activity for kids to kind of loosen them up...a fun drawing sort of activity. Alright, first thing we're going to do is we get the kids to get as big a piece of paper as we can manage and a...just a scribble, which is one of the things they love to do anyway, so you start the scribbling, and when they scribble, you want 'em to talk...fill the page...big looping scribbles all over the page. All over the page and then...you kind of get 'em to anticipate it. When you say stop, stop your pencil. So, stop! Then, tell 'em to pick up their marker and come back and they can find different things inside the scribbles. Well, my favorite is how to...they, they find fish 'cause fish are real easy especially because they have a tail so you'd shape. You'd look for thee outlines of the fish. Kay? And not just a fish, although you can find a whole lotta fish, but you put eyes on it. Maybe a flounder, a whale. You might even find a manta ray with a tail. Or, I...I don't know. You can come through here and find a a ton of different things. And walk around the class and say "good job" or "that's a great fish!" Says "oh did ya see that one?" Maybe a minnow. There's a minnow. Don't forget the gills. And it's always neat when you find something like the manta ray or you even create something like a, you might create a shark. Kind of add in certain elements. There. That's how you get the kids warmed up for drawing.
