1. Show examples of drawings and photos with value.

2. Gather your paper and sort them into piles of white, black and various shades of gray. (If you don't have the shades you need use paint or markers to create them.)

3. Draw a cone, cube or sphere on your board in pencil.

4. Observe how the light reacts to the shape in your reference photo. Next tear off the necessary shades of paper and begin gluing them down to your board. Every once in a while take a step back to look at your picture. Continue adding layers of paper to get the highlights, lights, shadows and cast shadows exactly how you want them.
