Last week my students created a still life that was made of several objects that they arranged with their table partner. This week the students had one stuffed turtle to draw from. They had to make a minimum of five turtles that overlapped & filled up their page. We also discussed "value" using different amounts of pressure. Since I was just introducing the concept of value...there was much grace in how they applied the new information! The turtle was light green & dark green. So I told the students that they could make the turtle what ever color they wanted as long as they stuck with the lighter value for the body & darker for the shell as it was in the original.
