Finished shoe drawings were placed in the hall this week. Students showcase their clean lines and proportion in a line drawing. For the shaded drawing, they worked to achieve contrast as well as detail work. I think they look great!
These classes are building proportion skills as well as gradual shading, back shading, highlights, and shadows.
Figure drawing is the focus for the 8th grade students at this time. They are creating the correct shape and size for the body and then using that skeleton to help draw the clothing. Students will be using chalk pastel soon to shade.
All students are working on drawing and shading. Proportion and value are difficult skills and I am so proud of the improvements the students are making.
