Painting Students Work With Value

Painting Class- Outdoor Sketching

Students sketch in the gazebo.

Ms. Schlesman’s painting class enjoys the inspiration of sketching outside in the beautiful Florida weather, but these students do not let a gorgeous day distract them from their work.

Students completed projects working with value.  An essential element of art, value refers to the lightness or darkness of a color. In the first project, students created an organic pencil drawing on top of a watercolor background, using the pencil to emphasize areas of value.  The second project, an abstract painting, required students to focus on curvilinear lines, which are curved lines that form a shape.  Students used the curvilinear lines to show a gradual change in value.
