The 4th graders will be taking a break from making their color wheels and starting to get in the wintery spirit. This lesson came at the perfect time as we were just hit with about a foot of snow!
Our art vocabulary words are Value and Form
• Value refers to the dark and light in an artwork
• Form is 3-Dimensional and takes up space or creates the illusion of space
We will start out by using white chalk pastel on dark paper. (black, blue or purple) to draw 3 circles. We will also talk about having a light source and shadows.
After that, they will select a dark colored chalk pastel (black, purple, blue) and color the opposite side and then gradually blend the dark color and the white together.
They will then add all the fun details to make their snowmen different.
