Observational Drawing: Still Life: Shading and Value/Grade Three
Grade three students have had experience drawing from observation while in second grade. Among the different techniques learned last year, students have practiced shading objects with the side of their pencil to make them appear more three-dimenionsal. Here, students were introduced to charcoal pencils, given specialized instruction in using pressure and blending to depict light and value changes, as well as how to use an eraser as a drawing tool for the same purpose.
