3rd graders will creating their own robot! They will draw their robot with only a black sharpie marker, no pencil! We will be learning about how to show value by cross-hatching. Cross-hatching is a technique used to create shading effects by drawing closely spaced parallel lines. Value refers to the dark and light found in art. The 3rd graders will be experimenting to see if they can cross-hatch and make their robot have many values or shades of gray/black.
I'm in my 6th year teaching art in Becker, MN. Time has really flown by! Wowza!
