We used calendar pictures of birds for inspiration in this project. Before we started drawing we discussed proportion and placement. Each student was given a bird picture to reference while we discussed the shape of the bird body (like a raindrop); the head size in comparison to the body size (can be different on different species); the angle and size of the beak; the length of the tail; and the angle of the legs.  The students then pencil drew the bird and comparable surroundings as the calendar picture. They colored the birds with oil pastels and finished with a colored chalk background. For further information on this project see “Drawing Birds” in the 6th Grade Projects Gallery in the sidebar.
