  1. Hi Miriam! I love your site, and have used some of your lessons in my class. My students always love their results. I want to do the bas-reliefs drawings pictured above with them . . . did your students trace over printed pictures first? Thanks!

    • Hi Debra! Thanks for your comment! In this lessons the students have drawn directly on transparent (opaque) tracing paper overlapped on a black and white picture of a bas-relief. They used colored pencils, so is easier for them to find the lights and shadows. Have I answer to your question? Please, tell me if you need further informations! 🙂
