Art 2 Students are now working with Drawing Pencils.

The objectives for this project were to:

  • Create an abstract composition with shapes based on 4 numbers, fill in each shape with a full range of value-black to gray to white.
  • Exhibit a skillful use of the tools: drawing pencils, ruler, kneaded erasers, soft white erasers, and blending sticks to produce a technically correct drawing with no visible outlines. Shape is determined by value.
