Three ways to shade

| | , ,

Students in the grade7 (classe 2B) have tried three different types of shading with a pencil:
1) HATCHING: with different pressure of the pencil,
2) CROSSHATCHING: with crossed lines,
3) STUMBLING: with overlapped scrawls and random marks.

Afterwards they colored the background with markers, drawing free shapes and lines with negative and positive spaces. Eventually we pasted the drawing on an colored paper to create a frame

  1. I like these pictures a lot, especially the idea with different ways of drawing shades. The individual patterns around the figures make the pictures even more wonderful.
