This middle or high school art worksheet will tie into your middle or high school art curriculum beautifully. It is a great skill builder and can be done as a sketchbook assignment, practice drawing worksheet, or substitute teacher assignment. Learning to shade a simple shape like an egg helps isolate drawing skills and makes learning how to draw and shade simple.
It is easy to share digitally or in class so it is great for distance learning, homeschooled art, or in the art classroom. The worksheet contains a link to a video drawing tutorial which is great for when students are absent, miss a demonstration, or when need a review.
Both PDF and Google Slide versions of the drawing and shading worksheets are included to fit your own classroom needs. They contain links and QR codes that students can scan with any device to make it easy for them to access the video demonstration easily.
A rubric and reference image to draw from is also included for easy grading and to help students self-evaluate as they draw.
The drawing video stresses layering values to create depth and dimension of the form and demonstrates proper pencil shading technique. Students are always amazed when they see how careful observation and shading can make a simple shape appear three-dimensional.
Understanding value lays the foundation for good drawing habits and teaches students to really draw what they see.
