Sixth graders learn shading skills in art

Sixth graders have been working in art class on pencil sketches, learning lessons about how to create and use a drawing grid, scaling, and shading. Each student chose a black and white sketch from the Web to replicate, printed it out, and then created a grid on a larger sheet of paper to scale the drawing up to a bigger size. Students created their sketch and then started the shading process, learning how to use different pencils to achieve a lighter or darker look.
