Highlight and Shadow Snowman

This shaded snowman project comes from “For the Love of Art” blog. Great idea that can have many upward levels of complexity added. Thanks for the idea Kristin!
1. I used my favorite scrapbook paper from Joann’s as they come in some really pretty packs of blue. A letter size sheet was folded in half to make a card, and I drew a very simple snowman on the front.
2. I traced the snowman with a black marker.
3. Highlights and shadows were added with colored pencils. When light shines on an object, the brightest side is said to have a “highlight” and the darkest side a “shadow”. When you start with colored paper, students can use white and darker colored pencil to accomplish this look.
