Shading in Year 1

In Art, Year 1 have been learning all about shading. We have been using our pencil to experiment with different shades and tones on paper. For a light shade, we apply little pressure and for a darker shade we apply more pressure. As well as shades, we have been experimenting with different textures by moving the pencil in different directions. We have used our pencil and charcoal to practise our shading. 

We have also practised shading within our drawings. We sketched a pear today and applied different shades to our creations. We thought about where the shadows were and applied more pressure. We have really enjoyed our Art lesson today.
