I know finding gigantic bugs at a thrift store might send some of you running for the exit. Not me. Especially since they were made of plastic. They were from the Lakeshore company, and in brand new, never opened packaging.
We went over a few interesting facts about bugs and insects before we tackled drawing them. And we created a five-level value scale to practice getting the full range out of our pencils. (We just use #2 Ticonderogas.)
Make it a Wonderful Day!
