4th graders are drawing snowmen!
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 to draw the snowman. One side of the snowman is the light side.
After that, they will select a dark colored chalk pastel and color the opposite side, then gradually blend the dark color and the white together.
At the bottom of the snowman, they add a shadow.
They will then add fun details to make their snowmen unique.
Below is a video I created to show each of my classes.
I'm in my 6th year teaching art in Becker, MN. Time has really flown by! Wowza!
