Demonstration/Modeling of Dagger Stroke

Part of Lesson Plan: Clean Up/Trace Back for Scan Ready Artwork

Activity Overview / Details

On an overhead/camera/projector show and demonstrate various examples of a dagger stroke (short stroke, longer overlapping strokes, curvilinear stroke). Show how to create the various strokes and have students create their own practice versions.

Check for understanding: What is the point of clean up? Why spend time fixing and perfecting the line drawing itself instead of fixing it in the computer? What are the defining characteristics or qualities of the dagger stroke (short, long, curvilinear)?
