Finish the Doodle Picture

I found this wonderful exercise at illustration.com. Try giving your students a page with several unfinished doodles, and just watch what they come up with!
1. I gave one doodle sheet to each student – even as young as 1st grade – and told them the line drawings were just the beginning of something that they were to finish. If they had trouble seeing something, they could rotate the paper until some other ideas came.
2. Have the students draw the image in pencil, trace with a black marker, and color in with colored pencils. I can still recall my favorite drawing where a young girl not only saw a rabbit, but a rabbit hiding BEHIND a rock. Too clever!
