RE: Painting unit in high school

I do a value scale exercise; a color mixing exercise; a brush-stroke excercise; then follow with painting geometric shapes three-dimensionally (cast shadows, highlights). After that we paint still life objects, with one objective per day: background, foreground, laying in shadows; refining color, shape and shadow. Takes about two to three weeks @ 55 minute daily classes.

Subject: Painting unit in high school

I am putting together a painting with acrylics unit for high school
students. I'd like to get your input on what to include and the steps
to take. Thanks.
