8th Grade Tabletop "Self-Portraits"
In this lesson, the 8th graders brought in items that they felt represented something about themselves. After some drawing exercises to help them learn more about drawing from observation and using value in their work, the students set up the objects they brought in and drew them as accurately as possible. They made sure to include all the shadows and other light and dark values by shading with a variety of dark and light pencils. Their drawings are amazingly detailed and realistic. This was a great way to start the school-year.
