What educators are saying

Love these creative practical resources for my ELL art class. Very handy no-prep resource to have! Thank you!
I was very happy with this resource. I hate when a resource is disappointing. This resource is an excellent one for teaching the technique.


This middle or high school art activity is a printable worksheet that focuses on the cross-hatching shading technique. This art lesson is a great way to introduce and reinforce creating value using cross-hatching before a drawing project. 

This worksheet is an in-depth study of shading with cross-hatch lines. On the front of the worksheet are examples of:

➢A cross-hatching line value scale

➢Different cross-hatching line shading techniques

➢Creating gradation

➢Using a mix of cross-hatched lines. 

➢Examples of tight, organic, alternating, curved, contour and pattern cross-hatching are also included. 

On the back of the worksheet, the students have an activity to complete. This is a great way to determine whether or not they understand the shading concepts introduced on the front.
