The 6th graders completed their 2nd observational drawing of the year, and continue to improve! They began with simple 3D volumes, learning the correct way to shade to show the 3D quality. Next, the students looked at vases, mugs, baskets, bowls, and noted what 3D volumes were inside the objects.
For the still lifes, Mr. Everhart’s homeroom used value scales and shaded their drawings with pencil. Mrs. Hester’s homeroom used line weight and color to finish the drawings.
For inspiration, the students looked at still life paintings by Giorgio Morandi, an Italian artist who makes great use of simple objects.
