Value & Form (2nd Grade)
2nd graders totally took off with this lesson on form and value. At first they were pretty unsure of themselves, but after the first form they had it down. I had them working with ebony pencils, which they LOVE...even though they are a wee bit messy. They were really excited that they got to use the good white erasers too! So we first talked about the Elements of Art and the vocabulary terms, form, shape, 2-D, 3-D, and value. Then we did a quick value scale. After students got the hang of coloring by using pressure we started the forms. They loved drawing their little suns. I hadn't planned on drawing one, but they really dug that idea. Here are some results...
Here is a drawing a student made of me teaching the lesson on the Promethean Board. I love it so much!
