Mon. Oct. 9 #ValueChallenge #SelectionTools #

Intro to Art: Value Challenge

  1.  Show proficiency and utilize prior knowledge in their understanding and awareness of VALUE by transferring appropriate shades from a reference image by referring to their VALUE SCALE to locate values in their image.
  2. Orally ask any questions about the project demonstration they may have using complete sentences.

The goal was for each of you to not only be able to use the drawing pencils to shade values but be able to identify the subtle differences between those values and what steps/tools you could use to achieve those values.

As you work throughout the next few days on this project, I’d like you to ask yourself whether or not you’re representing the values that are present on your image properly and if not what types of steps do you need to take to get those values to match.
