You will draw from real objects and learn how to blend chalk pastels to create tone. You will also practice other techniques to create tone in your drawing including cross hatch shading.
  5. Using a pencil to shade different tones creates form.
  6. An example of hatching
  7. Lessons: 2 Look at the reference material. For this lesson, you will need an object Task 1 Make a blind contour drawing Task 2 Make a continuous line drawing Task 3 Divide your page into a 4 irregular sizes and make a series of drawing studies from different viewpoints. Use the following materials: pencil, ink and pen, charcoal and chalk and paint/colouring pencils. Reference MaterialViewpoints: multiple perspectives A continuous line drawing:A blind contour drawing of a sandal: A tonal pencil drawing: Homework Assignment Make 3 blind contour drawings in your sketchbook.

The style of work produced by this movement is characterised by the aim of showing all sides of the subject matter simultaneously on a 2d surface. This method produced a geometric feel.
  36. Key features of Cubist still life: •Multiple view points •Shapes made angular •Use of collage, such as newspaper •Limited colour, quite earthy.

  38. • Lichtenstein's Comic Style Paintings • In this next project, we are interested in applying Lichtenstein's comic style to your own still life compositions.
  39. Homework
  40. Levels of achievement: In year 8 you should be aiming for a level 5 or 6. To achieve a level 5: You will use all the space on the page. You will draw out the overall shapes lightly and accurately. You will demonstrate tone by shading with areas of light and dark. The shading will stop at the edge rather than creating a noticeable outline. To achieve a level 6: You will do all of the above and will also consider where the light is shining on the object and creating shadows or even reflections. You will be able to see at least 4 different tones as well as black and white. Task 1: Buy your favourite sweets. Lay the sweets out on a white piece of paper and make a detailed drawing or painting of these. Task 2: Research the work of Lisa Milroy. Use the question sheet to help answer questions about her work
