I wanted to go over a fifth grade value objective one more time and found this lesson at ww.zamoranoarts.blogspot.com. I asked my classes to draw at least seven crayons on their paper and then use colored pencil to color showing value with one light source. They then used a black colored pencil to add a shadow on the dark side.
Lines were added to make it look like the crayons had been used to draw on the paper. My students really got into this drawing lesson and asked if they could add pencils, paint brushes, glue bottles and scissors also. This is a great, simple way to teach value with one light source. I was very pleased with the finished work and my student’s enthusiasm, I will be teaching this again next year!
