I have created some videos for you to all practise your shading skills, by beginning with simple objects. You may already feel confident with your shading skills, though it would still be good to experiment by drawing at least one basic object, for instance a shape (a purple rectangle, maybe). After you have practised your shading skills, try to apply your skills to a small object from your home.

I hope you find shading an enjoyable activities and skill to learn, as well as challenging. If you are proud of any of your artwork, please send a picture of these to email@example.com with the subject title 'Art Club with Miss Watson', this enables your emails to come straight to my attention. It would be really love to see your work and add to the art display on the web page.
Thank you so much for looking at this art activity. Please email if you have any queries or even suggestions - I am getting used to posting videos and online pages to communicate with the children and present some fun ideas, however as this is a new approach I am very welcoming to any constructive criticism adults and children may have to help improve this.
See your lovely artwork soon,
Miss Watson 👩🏻🎨🎨
