Shoe Drawing with Value
This week we are combining what you worked on the past two weeks. You will be creating a drawing of your two shoes and shading them in with pencil to show value. You should have lots of practice sketching your shoes since you completed blind and modified contours of them.

Please read through the entire power point lesson and look at the student examples. Remember, this week you can sketch your shoes; it does not need to be a contour. Please include ALL the details in your shoes. Take your time, this does not need to be completed in one sitting and most of all, HAVE FUN!!

Value Drawing
I want to thank those of you that turned in your contour shoe drawings. You guys did a great job!!

Today’s assignment is a review of value drawing. You learned about value in sixth grade as well as this year with your monochromatic painting. You will be creating a value scale and shading some objects. You will need a pencil and paper (or you can print pages from slides). Please read through the ENTIRE power point before you start drawing.
