BENSON MN– Last week, the students enrolled in art began a new project involving portraits, grids, and the black-to-white value scale. As this week comes to a close, many students are beginning to see the fruits of their efforts.
The objective of the project is to continue to practice the value scale, and to create more realistic facial drawings using the grid method. The grid method involves drawing a grid over a photograph and redrawing each square individually onto a piece of paper or canvas.
“The majority end up enjoying it,” art teacher Jenessa Grossman said, “When they first start out, it’s pretty daunting. The project is to challenge the students– the middle of the project is when they start enjoying it,” she went on, “and in the end, once they’re done, they feel most proud.”
