Shape/shadow/light using oil pastel
We started the lesson with a discussion on how light and shadow affect a shape. Students included both shadow/shape/light using oil pastel on a dark paper surface. A shape was selected, shadow was created from the box container and light was from a flashlight.
These works of art below by 5th grade students were created by using flashlights on objects where the objects were put in a white diorama. Observation of the objects and oil pastel for color, were used.
