In my Drawing 1 class, I recently had my students study drawings by master artists. Each student selected a copy of a master drawing and then did his/her best to reproduce it with charcoal on 18x24 inch paper. My hope was that my students would gain greater insight into the drawing process as they observed the "solutions" used by master artists. Overall, I was very pleased with the results. Here a few of the drawings that resulted from the project.
