Drawing and Shading Drills in Upper School Art

Students in Daniel Vance’s general art class are working on drawing and shading drills. The students are using clamp lights that cast hard light and create shadows on the simple objects they are drawing, including cones, spheres, and cylinders. Vance said the exercise will allow the students to improve upon their abilities to build images using value, which is the levels of light and how they are shading the lightness or darkness on paper.
