This class was super fun and the kids really had to think critically about light and dark. The project entailed drawing a "K" holding a flashlight in a dark forest. Everything outside of the flashlight ray was dark. Everything within the flashlight ray was colored in full color. Here's what they don't realize they learned:

  • 3d lettering
  • Warm and dark colors
  • Drawing a forest
  • Separating light from dark
  • Adding shadows
  • Composition
  • Foreground, middleground and background

At the end we drew Branch from Trolls with our extra time.
