5th grade artists learned how create a focal point, or center of interest, in their composition. We began by drawing a focal point and adding leading lines that guided eyes towards our focal point. We added overlapping objects, pattern and texture. Then lastly, using ebony pencils and blending stumps, we added high contrast our focal point and the area around it. We then used value (lights and darks) to add interest to our work but were careful not to over power our focal point.

Second graders learned about the elements of art, specifically form, value and space. We learned how to draw cubes and created the illusion of space and depth by overlapping. We then used value an shaded with a directional light source to create further the three dimensional illusion.
