Lessons in Pencil: Antique Lantern

I love to stop at antique stores and browse the old reminders of history. This old lantern brings back memories of tales told by our grandparents and maybe our great grandparents.  We are going to use pencil to create a masterpiece from an old lantern. It is covered with old corroded metal and yet it glows from the light within. After doing this project you will have a better understanding of the importance of having three values in every picture.  You will use those values to make the lantern speak with age and nostalgia. You will see how you can draw glass and make it look transparent and you will make the lantern three dimensional on a flat piece of paper.
