The students love finding out what the letters B, H and F mean on pencils. Then using them to experiment with the darkest and lightest shades they can make with them. They choose different objects and developed their observational and fine motor skills. Their final artwork was to produce studies of parts or whole of a bicycle using their new skills. Below you can see the results of their hard work.
As a final part to this unit the students themselves chose how they would further their personal studies into how artist create art in three-dimensions. The student watched youtube tutorials, read and followed instructions in art books. They were undaunted by the difficulty of the task, their motivation and interest enabled them to produce beautiful work. Below see some of the children's work.
