I CAN:


  • understand VALUE added to shapes (2D) can create illusion of form in drawings (3D)
  • learn that shading adds depth, contrast and even movement in a drawing by capturing shadows and highlights
  • observe how light and shadow appear on an sphere
  • create forms by using shading on shapes

Value:

Assignment:

Turn Shapes into Forms using VALUE to create an illusion of 3D on a 2D surface. Use the pressure of pencil to create a range of values. Create the following forms:


  • Value Scale
  • Sphere
  • Cube
  • Cylinder
  • Cone


You may try any of the different kins of shading you see illustrated above.
