During this unit, the 7th-grade students learned about the art element: value. Value is a core element of art as it allows an artist to create the illusion of form within an artwork. Students studied value in depth including drawing various scales using graphite pencils. After students felt comfortable rendering shapes into forms, students chose their own objects to be used in their final still life. To personalize their drawing, students chose their background and foreground materials, along with the objects used in the final artwork.
