  1. MarshmallowDrawing Adapted from Mr. Gilstrap, Mrs. Phillips, and Mr. Buenrostro’sLesson Date

  2. You will Learn about • Composition • Viewfinders • Thumbnails • Observational drawing • Value • Shading • Light Source

  3. Materials • White Sheet of Paper (For Marshmallows) • 4.5”X 6” Paper (For Drawing) • Pencil • 2Marshmallows • Glue

  4. Definitions (Write them Down) • Form: Refers to the 3-Demensional quality of objects. • Tone: The overall color on the surface of an object. • Shading: Shading is drawing where no light falls. • Cast Shadow: The shadow of a form falling on another form. • Texture: The roughness or smoothness characteristic of familiar object.

  6. Step 1: Viewfinder • Cut two L Shapes out of paper and put them together to make a viewfinder • Make sure the shape you create is the same as the paper • Make a smaller shape to include less of the image or make a larger shape to include more • Take a mental snapshot of what you see and draw it • Close one eye Shape of Drawing Paper

  7. Viewfinder Shape of Drawing Paper Which Viewfinder is wrong and why? A. C. B.

  8. Shape of Drawing Paper Step 2: Thumbnails • Create three thumbnail sketches • 3 Boxes that are the same shape as the drawing paper • Quick Sketch • Portrait vs Landscape • Very little negative space • Edges of the marshmallows are going off the side of the composition • Prop the marshmallows up on something high for a better view Your Name:___________ Is this a good Composition? Why? What is wrong with this box?
