The Beauty of the Beasts in Chalk Pastels
Skophammer, Karen
Arts & Activities, v147 n2 p29 Mar 2010
In this article, the author describes how her seventh-grade art students captured an image of a stuffed animal in the "whole-to-part" drawing technique using chalk pastels. Shading with chalk pastels can give a gradual change in value from dark to light. The shading and color changes the mood of the original drawing, and adds texture, too. Chalk pastels can be used to show the subtleties and lightness so gloriously, but can also be used for richness, depth and strength when needed.
