Continuing our journey into seeing, I decided to focus on looking at light and shadow. The subtleties of change in light will take you in if you if you let them. What is it about light and shadow that intrigues the artist in us? It was a mystery and the kids wanted to find out more. It was also a perfect opportunity to look at value. Watercolour lent itself perfectly for this exploration as you can see below.
Some kids painted in big 'swooshes' while for others made charts.
Next week or so we will begin making collages from these color charts.
