As we worked on our ugly dolls some of my students were super seamstresses and finished up really quickly. Others took a little longer. I started by having my super seamstresses work to help others but there came a point where they need another something to do.
Since we were creating forms by sewing our ugly dolls we decided to draw forms, using shading to make them look realistic. Students were asked to create a drawing showing their ugly doll and friend doing something. They could finish them during class time or at home.
They did a pretty good job... especially since some were done completely on their own time.
It was really easy for my students to understand that a shadow was needed but they struggled with making sure their was a change in value on their ugly doll to show roundness.
