Pattern for a helpful "Dancing Man". Make this out of heavy card stock, connect the pieces with brads as shown in the center, and lay it onyour paper to make different poses for your body-outlines. If you have trouble rendering figures, this can make things easier till you learn how.(It is ok to print this out for a whole class--Tara)

A suggested pattern for "proper" rendering layout, which I use in my class. (Standards in other teachers classes will vary - ask your instructor for his/her preferred standard form). (It is ok to print this out for a whole class. --Tara)

"Croquis" Outline Sheets: These are forms made for making rendering easier for beginning students. To watercolor on them, just print them out on card stock not paper. They also can be used as supplementary images for the costume shop "book" of a productions designs, outline drawings of items in storage or a history collection, etc. (It is ok to print these out in any quantity. --Tara)
