Whether it is paint, oil pastel, crayon, or anything else you could think of (yarn, paper, sequins...), 8th grade students are showing what they know about value through the process of making portraits.
Fine Art by Fred Hatt- "Michael W.," aquarelle crayons, 70cm X 50cm, 2009. I love the energy that the artist puts in to make these portraits. On his website, he has many other portraits as well as figure drawings. This method of drawing could be used with chalk pastel as well.
