The nice thing about peppers is that they have easily seen contours and can be  lit to make them obvious. We talked about how lines need to deal with the 99.9% of what makes something observable-not the outlines, but everything inside the outline. We also talked about how a line can have a value (from light to dark) and a direction(s) to show the contour, and how they can do this at the same time. If you are thinking this is too much for an elementary student you would be wrong. I just don’t dump it all on them at once. We spent 2 classes drawing this object. They learn a lot about drawing that could be applied to just about anything else!
