In this lesson, we will understand the basics of line, shape and tone. We will practise 'weight of line': this means how dark it is or how hard we are pressing. We will focus on using basic shapes for our work. These basic shapes will be the basis for most, if not all, drawings we do. We will also add a variety of tones using shading techniques.
Unit Overview: 3D sculpture: developing fine motor skills
For next step we recommend the unit: Introduction to art: understanding the basics - linking work to self.
In this lesson, we will continue our exploration into paper manipulation by creating a sculpture inspired by natural forms.
