The 8th graders are really challenged with value drawings in art class. The first still-life drawing they do is a value sketch in regular pencil. Then, they move onto a value drawing in white pencil on black paper. This is difficult because the pressure of the pencil changes. However, it is a great drawing to get them ready for their scratch art drawing. All of their drawings are supposed to have 8 values. They really do a great job and it's so nice to see how far they have come since their first sketch for me, in 6th grade.
