DMAPractice shading using the shading warm-up hand-outLearning TargetsTo understand high quality pencil shadingTo use high quality pencil shading to create a three dimensional effect.Success criteria: I canUse shading to create a three dimensional effectAgenda: 9/15/2015Create a value chartPractice high quality pencil shadingCreate a value chart1 wide by 9. Break the 9 inch section into nine individual 1 sections. Draw as light as you can in the first square and get increasingly darker as he goes. The last section will be the darkest you can make it. The scale should have nice even steps in shade, no big jumps in value, yet each one should be obviously darker then the last.

To make forms three dimensionalDraw the objects lightly in contour form. Observe how the light hits the objects. Draw the shade that you see on the form with your pencil. You should not be able to see pencil strokes and there should be no smudging with your fingers. All shading will be done with your pencil. To make forms three dimensionalEach form will be defined by the shaded values not lines. Make nice smooth pencil strokes for blending, no scratchy lines.Fill the page with the drawing, dont just do a little drawing in middle of the page.
