6th grade students used their observational skills to draw each object using continuous line with pencil. They used overlapping to randomly arrange the tools on the page. The students used the ping–pong method of observing which helps to keep your eyes on the objects, the same amount of time as drawing. The composition with the objects should fill the space in a balanced way.
Aerial Perspective is gained by showing a gradually lighter value on the objects that appear farther away. This concept of perspective was applied to the objects by outlining with heavier weighted line and darker shading on the objects that are closer to the front. Using this idea, it becomes evident that the distant objects are lighter in value. Mrs. Matuk-Kroupa
6th grade Students worked in teams in order to make an arrangement of building blocks to study in an observational drawing. Since they were working from direct observation it became necessary to create the same set-up each class. They had the task of showing 3 different values on each block and 5 total different shades in the composition. The students then used a cartoon figurine to add a surprise element to the arrangement. The studies should show how a single light source created various shadow effects and cast shadows. During the progression of the study students learned how to evaluate the more correct shade using a value scale. Drawing with a more realistic finish was the goal to using a controlled arrangement with specific lighting.
