Sculpture: Paper Manipulation

In this lesson we are going to make sure we all understand the basics of line, shape and tone. We will practise ‘weight of line’ this means how dark it is or how hard we are pressing. We are going to focus on using basic shapes for our work. These basic shapes will be the basis for most if not all drawings we do. We will also add a variety of tones using shading techniques.
