STEM Students “Know” Light and Shading

STEM Students “Know” Light and Shading

Students in Ms. Kim Neal's’ Art class are studying shading and how light behaves on objects. The students sketched a ball using the “I Know” method. Each table was given a styrofoam ball placed on a white sheet of paper and a flashlight shown directly from above on the ball. Students sketched and shaded the object with the highlights and mid-tones. Afterward, they discussed the differences and similarities in their sketches with peers at their table. Everyone really enjoyed this hands-on activity.
