We reviewed shading and making lights to mediums to darks flow
with both crayon and colored pencil last week.
Before explaining perspective and delving in logistically I developed this did this two day lesson inspired by this Artsonia image I had pinned which was really successful!
Pencils, black block crayons for rubbing, rulers, sharpies- that's it!
In two days the students learned how to measure and use a ruler, create depth, learned more about Keith Haring, and reviewed figure drawing! Woo!
Day one: Measure with ruler
Students had a practice manilla paper and real construction paper.
This gave them four chances to get it right if they needed (2 sides, 2 papers)
which they appreciated.
Shading light to dark in each quadrant.
Day two: figure drawing review, viewed a short reel of Keith Haring videos I put together on youtube.
They had to do three practice figure drawing.
Added on the figure and sharpied it in.
(The design at the top was so clever I could never have come up with this idea myself-
thank god for 10 year old minds!)
Next week I try out DMasse's blocks, projector, and whiteboard trick!
More images to come!
