What is a drawing?

Year 9 students in Art  took part in an experimental drawing workshop with Miss K. The students were using sticks to draw and make marks!  They used some of the Formal Elements that they have been learning in previous lessons and created a large scale image of the small piece of popcorn that they were given. 

This experiment took all the students out of their 'comfort zone', as they saw the difficulty in keeping control over the long stick (as opposed to drawing fine details with their hands). There were only a few cheaters trying to use the stick lower down!
