Last week, we spent some time discussing and practicing exactly how to go about blending/shading better by thinking about CROSS CONTOUR LINES, and today we will discuss and practice what that looks like when we use pen and ink.  Be sure to copy down notes on these exercises as we will be starting your 2nd project within the week.


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.
