Prisma Color assignment
- I learned from my teacher and was able to share this with my
students: Snip strands of shiny ribbon. Each person gets three
prismacolors: a dark and light of one color and a white. Use the
light color as your medium. Use this rubric: never blend the white
into the dark color and always hatch in the same direction as the
flow of the ribbon (never from edge to edge). Blend the dark into
the medium and the white into the medium. Draw the ribbon showing the
highlights and shadow tones. After this learning process, allow the
students to create their own composition of ribbons on a 5x8 area.
(Colored pencil takes a long time). Another project involves flower
petals and their shadows and highlignts. This also works on colored
paper. Lay down the white first then color on top of the white for
vibrant hues on a dark background.

I haven't checked in for quite a while--so this reply is slow in coming. I just finished a colored pencil project with my ninth-grade class. None of them have had art before and many would prefer not to have it now! I adapted this lesson from this website:
click on Art Lessons 7-12--I used the lesson called "sphere drawings."
First I had my class draw 7 circles with a compass on 81/2" x 11" paper. We worked on shading techniques with a regular pencil. Once the composition was good, the circles were redrawn on a new paper. They were asked to choose four analogous colors and shade the spheres with colored pencils. We used really cheap (15 cents a box from Wal-Mart!) pencils. I think the brand was Rose art. We were able to model them a bit with pencil erasers. This project was very hard for my class--but they came out okay. I just put them up in a highly visible hall at school. My class is enjoying all the complements they are getting!
