6th Graders are learning about form and the 6 types of light that help show form: Highlight, Light, Shadow, Core of Shadow, Cast Shadow, and Reflected Light.
To put their knowledge to work students will select a sports ball of their choice (football, basketball, volleyball etc.) to show form and the 6 different types of light. The goal of the students is to make a 2D object look 3D. Students used oil pastel to achieve this, blending them very carefully together. Students were instructed to fill the background either with a pattern, solid color, or they could go along with the sport theme they chose.
