Art class - Drawing with Shadows
This week's art class was on adding shadows to our art. I kept it as simple as possible for drawing.
First we reviewed our pencil numbers. The difference in hard and soft lead. And then we talked about the patterns they could use when shading. I made each of them a worksheet to keep in their sketch books so they could refer back to them.
These are the shapes that I used. I also had a small flashlight on hand to allow them to see a shadow. They would put the shape on their sketch page and shine the flashlight down the see the shadows change in color.
Here are a few of our finished projects.
