We are still here! Abstract Value Portraits

It's been a while since we've posted updates about our class doings but we are still here! Check out our Value Portraits that 7th graders completed last week.

We started with practicing facial features and proportions, but it was up to the students how much realism would be included in the final piece. Value shading was also a big concept as we worked on this through a class demo and individually through a value study worksheet. We discussed different ways to apply value changes (hatching, cross-hatching, scumbling, blending, etc). In the final work, students chose how they wanted to represent value within the abstract shapes.
