Today we will be talking a little bit about what I have learned about art at Three Lakes Middle School. First I have learned about how to shade. Mrs. Starkweather has taught me a lot about shading such has you really need a number 2 pencil. Mechanical Pencils brake really easily so when are trying to shade it is really difficult to shade because it brakes easily and it is darker than your number 2 pencil. Another thing I have learned is when you are drawing a picture it is a lot easier to use a grid because it helps you know what part of the picture is in what number square. Later on in the year we as a class will learn a lot more about art!



This is a picture of the steps of shading.
