An articulate manikin

With the students of Year 8 we built an articulated manikin made of cartonboard which served as a model for drawing figures in motion. Each student has chosen a pose for his manikin, which could be from front or in profile, and invented a character to “dress up” and paint in an appropriate scenario. Here you will find the sheets to create your manikin!

  1. Thanks SO much for the manekin info. I’m living & teaching in Norway. I lost my old manekin patterns when we moved & have spent far too long searching for the perfect card layout. I find the “art” lessons required here are a tad weird & narrow, so I want to push towards a structured learning rather than copying from text books.
