The beginning in drawing is best made with the images the child has already formed in his mind, and then extended to more definite and concrete forms. As much as possible he should be guided into reproducing images from his own life and experience. The following outline is not intended to limit but to suggest the lines of drawing that can profitably be followed in these grades. The teacher must use her own judgment to a large extent, both
as to the amount to be used and the order in which it is given.
