Pastel Charcoals

Middle school art students have been honing their observational drawing skills and using charcoal pastels. This time, students chose colorful items to draw from a still life set up in class, and used the charcoal pastels to add color to their drawings. They experimented with different blending techniques and tools to create subtle color transitions in their forms. Students were encouraged to notice the value changes and tonal gradations that took place on the surface of their objects and try to replicate that on paper
