Art 2

Goal:  (3.2)  Assess and produce art with various materials and methods

  • Paper Bag Drawing:  Crumple a paper bag. Draw it, paying attention both to its value and texture and to how it works on the page as a design.

You might put down darks and use erasure to establish your texture.
Use value to suggest mass as well as light.
Optically we experience the modeling of the paper bag’s form as if it could be touched.
Dark and light patterns over the paper bag represent advancing and receding surfaces rather than light and shadows.
Changes in value signify physical changes in the surface terrain and equate to tactile experience rather than to the illuminating quality of light.

Goal:  (1.3)  Art and design have purpose and function

  • Value-The Element of Shadow

    Value- The Elements of Art - Repin this!V

    The word “value” is used a lot around this website. And with good reason.  Value is one of the seven elements of art. Value deals with the lightness or darkness of a color.  Since we see objects and understand objects because of how dark or light they are, value is incredible important to art.  (I’ll remind you that drawing and painting is about seeing.)

  • Texture– element of art that refers to the way an object feels to the touch or looks as it may feel.


Goal: (3.3)  Make judgements from visual messages

  • Presentations for 24 Things


  • Practice rolling film while watching American Photography, A century of Images
  • Assign  40 Paper Clips, Due:  10/16
