Art Class at Kennett Middle School

Every marking period students at Kennett Middle School have a live animal visit the Drawing Lab. This lesson allows students to put into practice the observational drawing skills that they have been working on. Drawing from observation (rather than from a photograph) helps to develop critical thinking skills, as well as gives the students an opportunity to draw an interesting and unique animal. Students have drawn goats, mini ponies, a calf, chickens, a parrot, a pig, rats, quails, rabbits, and most recently, pigeons and a chinchilla.
