6th Grade: Soda Can Drawings


Sixth graders focused on perspective drawing this year. For this project, students created observational soda can drawings. I taught students how to draw ellipses to make their cans look three-dimensional. Then students observed and drew the fonts and words on their can. Finally, students shaded their can using at least three different values. I gave students the choice of shading with pencil or colored pencil. Some students created a more complex space by adding a shadow, popcorn or a background.
