Value and Light Unit Plan

Jan. 31 to Feb. 27, 2022

Jan 30, 2022

For full context, see the description of my Art Home School Curriculum.

My online class at Brainstorm school takes about 20–25 hours a week, so this will be a reduced unit. My plan is to see how far I can make it through Scott Robertson’s book How to Render.



  • Marco Bucci on youtube: Light and shadow, Ambient occlusion I and II
  • Sycra on youtube: Foundations of Light and Shadow series


  • How to Render by Scott Robertson
  • Color and Light by James Gurney. This belongs more in a “Color and Light” unit, but I have it checked out from the library and am already half through reading it.


  • All assignments from How to Render.
