Abstract
This article explores the drawing practice within the educational philosophies of Frederick Froebel. Froebel offers art education and studio practice a great deal of influential approaches, unique media inspirations and enduring philosophical contexts for drawing. Froebel introduced exercises in linear drawing with horizontal and vertical lines, outline drawing of contours, free-hand and nature drawing, circular drawing and drawing from memory. Froebel also suggested more exploratory drawing activities in the service of observing, connecting and evoking form. His approaches towards drawing as varied explorations of nature, contour and shape with unique art media can open up pedagogical possibilities for the rich understanding of form and playful, sensory experiences in contemporary art education.
