Drawing with an Eraser was a super fun lesson, especially as I ended up buying some special erasers which were shaped specially for drawing with.

Art Lab: Drawing with an Eraser – Artist Study: Glen Szegedy
I was blown away by this particular artist, Glen Szegedy. We studied his charcoal and eraser sketch called Desert Frogs:

Art Lab: Drawing with an Eraser – Creating their own Original Art

We popped the drawings up in their art gallery. A good job jobbed!
