Inspired by Art Ed Bloggers: Shading
At the end of last year, I was **really** inspired by the line shading projects Mr. E's students completed. I chewed on the project idea all summer and decided that it would work as a great "intro to shading" alternative to the usual shading scales. I hate teaching shading scales because it is boring, the kids aren't really interested, and there is little room for creativity. So, with a little tweaking, Mr. E.'s project became a really awesome way to teach my high school art students about "lightest lights," and "darkest darks."
