7th and 8th Grade Art
Now that the bird house construction project is complete, we have switched gears to a drawing unit. I have re-presented shading to the students and they have been practicing the skills with shading exercises. I love to shade with graphite and find the process completely relaxing and enjoyable. The students are improving with practice and love to see a simple circle transform into a sphere with the application of shading. I am encouraging practice to strengthen their techniques and have seen several students improve dramatically within the time of 2 classes.
