Home school Art Lesson, Shading and Values with Pen and Ink

Spectrum Home School Art 2

Values are the degree of dark or light in an area in a picture. We ca control value by controlling the amount of ink in relation to the white paper showing.

This can be done with any technique, as well as any pen type.

Students will create an abbreviated value chart going only to five. The chart will have 5 squares each with a darker value. The first example shows standard crosshatching technique, the second row has dots and the third is scribbling.

After the students make a chart similar to the one above they practice on a project of their own choosing as long as the work demonstrates multiple values.
