Value Unit
This unit will teach students the relationship between dark and light in art.
Students will develop a sense of visual analysis when they begin to compare different shades of white and black. Students will learn to focus on what they see when drawing in order to avoid drawing what they think they see. (Ex. When asking a student to draw a cat, most can draw a cat with ears, a tail, a bod, whiskers...etc. When you ask students to draw the cat they see in a picture they are challenged to draw what they see rather than what they think they should see)
