Drawing & Painting I students are using their knowledge of line to create a new journal assignment. First students created shapes, either a recognizable shape or an abstract shape, and then they added lines to create patterns. This type of doodle is called a zentangle. Students are discovering that when the lines get closer together the area may appear darker, otherwise known as value! And...yes...this is our next big unit!
Drawing & Painting I students had a chance to further explore value while completing a fractured journal page. Using water soluble graphite and watercolor pencils they created a wide range of values and value changes. The black lines are sharpie and were created first to break up the white page and create a starting point.
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
