Lesson: Value Still Life
Grade Level: 5th Grade
Art Elements: Value, Shape, Form
Art Skills: Drawing, Value, Blending and Shading
Making Connections: Math (3D form)
I set up a still life on my Elmo, (document camera) so all of the students are seeing the same thing with the same lighting. Then, I have them draw the shapes on grey paper (gives them the middle value so it makes the lights and darks more evident). The kids add the darks and the lights to create a really successful value still life drawing.
Before I do this, students practice with value in a packet.
