Value studies

I was teaching Value studies today in art. So I brought in some things I did as a teenager as both good and bad examples of a value study. It was interesting asking students at a religious school what are values (mind you, these are 4th Graders). I did preface the question with the statement that it had nothing to do with morals, but they did not understand the question. After about ten students, a person got the answer correct. Then as we discussed pencil hardnesses and such and how to draw and what was a highlight in a graphite drawing and such, I could see the children light up as they figured it out. It was a very fun day teaching. I will find out probably tomorrow if I get to be their permanent teacher, or if this was just a fun event in my life. I do hope I get to be the children's teacher; I so do love teaching them, and they are such great students. Pray for me because it will be real hard to not get this a second time. I cried for a few days the first go round; it will be harder this time after having actually taught the children.

All the drawings and lithography below are my work, mostly from when I was a teenager, that I used as examples today. These are some of the drawings and such I posted today in class; some never got completed when I was young.

  1. I hope you get the job. It seems like your calling. Those kids would be lucky to have a teacher who loves teaching so much and who loves working with them and the subject.

    Nice informative post!

  2. I'm not the type to pray but I send my best wishes for you regarding the art teaching job. If you're teaching 4th graders tonal values then you seem o be the right person for it :)

    My daughter had the benefit of having an artist in residence at her school as the art teacher and the way the confidence of those kids soared when they realised they could actually make the pictures that they envisioned was amazing.
