Shading

Shading is the art of capturing the dark and light areas of an object to bring out the illusion of 3 dimension.

In learning this concept, students were introduced to the values scale to understand the gradual reduction of light from dark to light. The value scale task marked the beginning of learning how to vary hand pressure, which is an important skill in shading.

From this, students progressed to other shading tasks while also learning about hard and soft light.
