Intro To Art: Lined Shape Techniques

  • SWBAT identify the various ways to properly use PEN and INK by practicing value techniques in their sketchbook.
  • SW orally ask any questions about the project demonstration they may have using complete sentences.

Yesterday we looked at how you could use Pen & Ink to create value by practice 4 unique blending methods in our sketchbook (see below).  Today we will discuss a few methods that you will be able to use in your project to show your ability to use this new material and prove your understanding of value through the repetition of LINE.

4 blending methods: Hatching, Cross Hatchin, Stippling, and Random Lines.

Drawing: Texture Cubes

  • SWBT demonstrate comprehension for VALUE and TEXTURE by listening to P following an in-class demonstration of the various drawing styles which will be used in classroom exercise(s) such as a student-created value scale
  • SW orally ask questions about the techniques demonstrated during class time using content-specific vocabulary and complete sentences.

Where do we start this week?  So we’ve played around with various drawing styles, learned how to use LINE to create CONTOURS and CROSS CONTOURS, but what does this mean for a final drawing?  What comes next?  How do we bring additional elements of art into our drawings?

The answer is with VALUE and TEXTURE.  This week we will dive into the discussion of VALUE and it’s role in making drawings look three dimensional, while also understanding it’s relationship with TEXTURE.
