Design Your Own Shading Style
from The Creative License
Hello again! Summer is over and we’re finally back into the swing of things! My Art 4 students, by this age, are often tired of the same old, same old shaded drawings so I’ve recently been challenging them to come up with a new way to shade. If you google “scribble shading,” the variety of ideas that come forward are amazing.

I’m especially a fan of Malaysian artist,
Vince Low and his celebrity portraits.
Here is a great video demonstration of what he does.
(And here is another inspiring video that could tie in with this project:
Embrace the Shake!)
To get students warmed up, I asked them to design a few different “styles” of scribbling or mark making. They could then choose whichever one worked best for their chosen photo.
