Right brain drawing, color, value

Homework: 2 line worksheets are due tomorrow.

Classwork today:
1. Introduction to color. Discussed primary, secondary, and tertiary (intermediate) colors. Students worked on simple color wheels, mixing their secondary and tertiary hues from primary colored pencils.

2. Introduction to value (light and dark shading). Value is one of the visual artist's most valuable tools for making shapes and lines on a two-dimensional surface appear to have three dimensional qualities, like depth and mass. Students were given value scales with examples of different techniques, like shading, hatching, crosshatching, and stippling.

3. Continued work on Right Brain Drawing exercise from Picasso's portrait of Igor Stravinsky.

Planned activities in Fine Arts for Friday: Complete Right Brain Drawing, complete color wheel and value scale worksheets, display Unique Drawings, finish any incomplete artwork.

Tomorrow is an Early Release Day, so classes will be only 40 minutes long and there wil be no lunch break. Students are released at 12:25 pm. There will be no homework assigned over the R&R weekend. Have a great week, everyone!
