6th Grade Line/Texture/Value Drawings
The 6th grade students learned about the variety of ways they could use pencils to create texture and value in a representational drawing. We looked at drawings created by Vincent Van Gogh and practiced some of the techniques he used to create value and texture using line. We also used shading techniques to create a value scale. The students then chose a photograph of either an animal or a local Vermont landscape to work from for their drawing. They observed the textures and values in their photograph, and accurately represented the textures and values in their drawings.
