Title: 3-D Shapes
Artist: Kim Newall
Ages: First grade and up
Objectives: To draw geometric solids using shapes, value, light source, shading, shadow and overlapping.
Every 3-D form begins with a shape. A circle becomes a sphere and a triangle transforms into either a cone or a pyramid. Watch a rectangle change to either a cylinder or a rectangular prism depending on the shape of its base. By adding an overlapped background line, light source, shading, and shadow, these flat shapes pop into 3-D like magic!
Shape words: Circle, triangle, rectangle, diamond, and oval
Form words: Sphere, cone, pyramid, rectangular prism, and cylinder
Depth words: Light source, shading, shadow, highlight, background line, and overlapping
Value: Light and dark and shades of gray in relationship to the position of the light source make forms appear 3-D.
Materials: Paper, pencil
