Art of the Week – Value and Perspective

When Tad was trying to describe what the lesson yesterday was about, he drew a blank and looked to his new teacher.  She said, “Tad, do you remember what I said during the class talk?”

“No,” he replied.

She looked at me with a smile.  “Well, at least he’s honest!”

The lessons were about value (the changing of the color from light to dark), and perspective (the view/angle).

In this case, the moon is the light, and then the kids mixed the shades darker with the blue and the black to create the night.  The picture is drawn as if you are looking up from the foot of the tree.


And then Tad added his little touches – the bats, the owl, the baby birds who apparently needed a midnight snack.

The class is a little smaller right now, but Tad is being a big help with the other kids (he’s significantly older than most of them).  I’m so proud of him.

    Oh, this one is magical! The value and perspective are clearly shown. I would like to see this one in person 🙂
