Differentiation is just a fancy word for working with students with different levels of interest, motivation, confidence, and skill. I gauge and identify students skill most of the time through my interactions with students, and their artwork. In order to work this project I offered the students three options:
1.) Work from simple stencils.
2.) Work from a complex stencil.
3.) Draw from life.
Use a dark oil pastel and a light oil pastel for highlights and shadows. Work from the model in each level of skill. Use a light colored pencil to trace the stencil. Work up multiples. Choose a color piece of paper that works with your color palette.
