Are you ready to make your drawings look 3-D? In Art Class Volume 6, Pat Knepley teaches you about the art elements: texture and form, and how you can use these to create realistic-looking drawings.
Lesson 21 – The Elements of Texture
Get ready to “feel” your drawings getting better! Pat introduces the art element of texture – how to make the marks on the page with pencil to convey how something might feel: Hard or soft, rough or smooth, bumpy or hairy!
Lesson 22 – Choosing the Right Tool
Pat shares the importance of selecting the right drawing tool to get the perfect texture effect! Have fun working with black pen and creating your own textures, then seeing which tool works best for some furry friends!
Lesson 23 – Make It 3-D
The best way to make drawings realistic is to turn a flat piece of paper into something that looks 3-D – that means making flat shapes into FORMS through drawing techniques. This is the final art element to be introduced – form – and we will use other art elements to do a form study of a sphere, a cone, and a prism.
Lesson 23 – One Shape, Three Results
Master Artist Pat guides you to the proper use of value and texture. Get ready to go on a shopping trip down the produce aisle and take one basic form – the sphere – but achieve three very different results!
