Help me give my students a visual model for drawing real life humans! Each year my classes struggle to get a good real life understanding of proportions and human anatomy! My whole school could use this item!
Oh good golly! What a bunch of creative, curious, and passionate middle school kids I have! I work at a small STEAM school in NC, and I have to say I have the absolute best school population I could have ever asked for. We spend our days exploring and innovating together through Project-Based Learning! Being one of two arts-focused teachers in the building, it is my job to provide the very necessary "A" in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, ARTS, and Math). We have children of every size, shape, color, and mindset! I spend my days laughing, learning, differentiating, planning, designing, building, growing, crying (sometimes, it is middle school!), and loving every minute of it!
Teaching anatomy is a huge subject for all levels of visual arts. Each student I teach has an interest in learning how to draw a human. Having a real life model to use, explain, and demonstrate proper proportions would be an invaluable resource.
We could use it to demonstrate, model, and explore proper human anatomy in a wonderful way!
Please help my whole school get access to this wonderful learning tool. It could be used in Art, Science, Social Studies, and Health! We would take it apart, explore every joint and bone, measure the length of each ligament, and so much more!
