Product Description
This project is a great introduction to line, shape and value. I’ve found it to be a fun alternative to traditional line drawing assignments and value scales. Best of all, with just a few small alterations, it can be engaging for many different ages and experience levels!
After giving the class a brief introduction to value, each student will receive a print-out which contains fraction of a larger image (loosely based on Van Gogh’s sunflowers.) The compositions are already broken up into simple shapes and labeled based on a 0-5 value scale. Students can work directly on the printed page or transfer/draw the image onto a fresh work surface.
I like to encourage my students to fill in each shape with a unique pattern, drawing or design- but it is required that they adhere to labeled values, as indicated by the letter in each shape. This isn’t just a “paint-by-numbers” project; each student works to create their own expressive, abstract artwork.
By enlarging the image to an abstracted scale, the students are able to focus on their own unique mark-making styles. Then, at the end of the project, comes the big reveal; the students work together to arrange their artworks like puzzle pieces and discover the full image.
The file includes:
- A printable PDF template which is scaled to accommodate 16 students, but can be printed multiple times for larger class sizes.
- Written instructions for students and teachers, with images.
- A cheat sheet for the final assemblage
This free file includes all you need for a basic introduction to color theory. It is perfect for a one or two-day exercise and could be completed easily with a substitute teacher.
However, it can be modified to suit higher skill levels and different mediums!
Try transferring the templates to canvas or canvas panels for a painting course.
Or put a digital twist on the assignment by assigning each student their own PDF file and asking them to complete the project on Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.
