In Drawing Lab, 3rd-5th graders had a choice day. They were offered 3 techniques, which they’ve recently learned: colored pencil blending, pencil shading, and eraser rendering. With a half face of a celebrity, students had to finish the other half, showing the correct values and matching the black and white photo. The drawing aspect was not part of the assignment, so a light sketch of the blank half was provided, allowing the students to focus entirely on the shading of the skin, facial features, and hair.
Here are some examples from the week: Aly Raisman, President Obama, Harry Stiles, and Taylor Swift. Also in the mix were Tom Brady, Kevin Garnet, and Bren Bataclan!
