    Art Shading Activities - Shading is an art technique that shows where a shadow falls, or areas where dark and light blend together. Kids can accomplish shading using smudging, cross-hatching and blending.

    A Tutorial For Pencil Drawing Shading Techniques - While learning to draw shaded pictures, there are some techniques that you need to follow and remember. Proper shading for the different objects is essential to draw reality to the images. If you are a beginner then here is a brief tutorial for you that make you familiar with the techniques of pencil drawing shading.

    How to Shade Effectively - Now, in earlier art classes, (like in high school) a lot of shading and blending of your pencil sketches is done with a tool called a stump. At least, that's what it was called then. Generally made of paper or something of the like, it's often difficult to create a soft blend. A piece of regular tissue (without additives like lotion or aloe) rolled corner to corner makes a great blending tool.

    Using Blending Techniques and Erasers - Use a kneaded rubber eraser to bring out the large areas that will appear the lightest. Don't go too rough with the eraser or the paper will get too rubbed.
