Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Create your own superhero!


This lesson is completely online, follow link HERE.

For this lesson students are brought through how to draw a proportionate person through various interactive videos, guided worksheets, and PowerPoints.  It starts by introducing students into the topic, superheroes, and then gets them thinking about "what powers they would have?".  From there students will take demonstrations and guided instructions on how to draw a proportionate person and use them as a template to create their own superhero.  Students will also apply shading techniques to their superhero. 

Attached is the full lesson description and a walkthrough and reflection on how it should go. 

Learning Targets: 
Be able to draw a proportionate human body along with explaining the how and why of the measurements.
Be able to draw a person in a stance using measuring techniques learned above.
Be able to accurately depict transitional shading using mark making and how the application of a light source effects the intensity.
be able to use, explain, and show specific shading techniques.
