Today we did a one-day lesson on drawing round shapes three-dimensionally and used apples as our reference. I demonstrated on a large paper while they followed along, making sure to teach what all the different parts were called. Some of these terms included: deep shadow, core shadow, highlight spot and half-tone shadow. I only do step-by-step lessons for projects that are very technique-based and therefore require a thorough demonstration. After we drew one apple together, they completed the set on their own. I love how they turned out!
