For elementary school art students understanding and applying value in artwork can be difficult. However, value is a key element of art when developing their skills. Shades and shadows are key to making those basic geometric shapes appear 3-D. This PowerPoint lesson is designed to introduce key concepts of color value, the value chart and the use of value in historically significant artworks. The presentation includes relevant artwork, a video link, animations and discussion points. My personal notes are also included. The final slide is a suggested written assessment, but could also be used as a final discussion to wrap it up.
This lesson can be enriched with the Value in Art Worksheet available in my TpT store, as well.
Please take a look at the preview. I know you will love it!
In my notes I reference two instructional activities that I will be posting shortly, keep an eye out for those products. They would really add nice portfolio pieces for product based assessments.
I am constantly working to improve my lesson plans, PowerPoints, visuals, etc. If and when I improve this or any other item I have for sale on TPT, I will always offer the updated version to the purchasers of the original at no cost.
