Students were struggling with the idea of value. They had trouble remembering the difference between contrast and value, so we did a mini project to help concrete value.
- Color choice
- compass and ruler usage
I cut long strips of paper and gave students compasses and rulers. They were to draw circles that did not overlap and filled the space. Next, they used rulers to further break up the space. The students needed to be careful to not let their lines cross.
Next, I showed them how each section, between the straight lines, was a 'color'. Then within that section each shape was a different version of that color.
A few students struggled with finding the sections and the shapes inside - but after some one on one instruction they were on their way!
