Value Paintings and Polar Bears

We had fun creating winter value landscape paintings and drawing polar bears in the Tuesday Elementary Class this week.


In the process, we learned about value. Value creates depth in a picture making the object look 3 D.   We looked at photos of the moon at night and saw how the circle around the moon is lighter and how the sky gets darker as you move away. We then created value circles around the moons on our project moving from pure white to dark, dark blue.

We also learned about horizon lines, foreground and backgrounds while we had fun painting our backgrounds.

We then very patently drew polar bears, cut them out, glued them on and added a few trees as we talked about shadow and perspective.  For the last step, we added snow to finish off our pieces.


I am so impressed by their work.
