A little while ago I came across a class over at Creative Bug that really inspired me to get back into playing in my sketchbook! I was looking for a fun art project that my daughter and I could work on together and discovered Lisa Congdon’s wonderful Sketchbook Explorations courses. They have really inspired both of us to start playing in our sketchbooks, in fact my daughter has nearly filled hers with doodles, patterns and drawings over the past month!

I loved doing this in art class. Art With Mr. E: Line Design w/Shading - Grade Very cool, fun art shading project from Art With Mr. E. he's an elementary art specialist. Try this with your kids (but I think grown ups would enjoy this too).

Blind Contour Drawing - love this way of getting them not to peek! GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!!  And fun looking too!!!!

The paper plate is GENUIS! ----Blind contour drawing is a fun way to see how accurately we can draw when we observe something very carefully, by looking at it and not looking away. - Using a paper plate is a great way to accomplish this.

Middle school or high school project idea: Draw only with straight lines... This could be fun!

My art project: Draw only with straight lines

Portrait drawn only with straight lines. Shadowing done only in lines as well. No solid shading. Only lines done in varying widths apart and in size.
