If your students ever complain about not knowing WHAT to draw, give them some of these drawing starters. They can get their imagination jump–started by designing a mural, drawing monsters, coloring creatively, and much more.
Be sure to send in any work your students are proud of so it can be published on Hip, Hip, Hooray's Gallery of Student Work. You can send photos of student work to firstname.lastname@example.org. You also can use the US Mail: Hip, Hip, Hooray c/o Sherina Poorman / First Presbyterian Church of Ardmore / 5 West Montgomery Ave. / Ardmore, Pa 19003
