It Took Lots of Hard Work to Get to These Finished Pieces! – Grade 5


Grade 5 artists have been working hard practicing a variety of drawing techniques in their sketchbooks.  Our drawing unit culminated in a colored pencil self-portrait.  Before tackling the self portrait grade 5 artists learned about using line shading to create value, and some color theory and how to blend colors in colored pencils.  The most important thing they learned to create a successful self-portrait was how to use basic facial proportions, to place all the details of the face in the proper place.  

If you get a chance to stop in at Conant, check out the display by the gym.  It’s a Guess Who of 5th grade artists!
