Upside Down- L/R Brain

Each year, I start the students off with drawing exercises, since I do have them for 18 weeks (55 minutes a day). I try to educate the students on the "tricks of the trade," such as drawing upside down, closing one eye to make things appear flatter, holding their pencil up to see angles, and using a view finder. In this exercise, the students learn about Pablo Picasso and his "Igor Stravinsky", the Russian composer. They then draw the portrait upside down, focusing only on the lines and marks, not on the image or symbol of the man.
