MS: Exploring Values

We are able to see and experience the world through light and values: they create form, depth, and allow us to identify where one object ends and another begins.

Students in the Middle School elective are exploring this concept by using values to transform a flat line drawing to something with form.

To loosen students up, we worked on large pieces of paper to create a contour drawing of something found in the room. Each student was only given about 5 minutes to accomplish this!

Then, we added values to this line drawing in two ways: the first using a single-colored value scale while the second was through a mixed-color value scale.

Students had to finish both large-scale drawings within the 45 minute class time which was a great way to get students to worry less about making mistakes. For some, this ended up being a favorite product to date!
