I like to teach value to my middle school students and one of my favorite lessons is Value Portraits. We start with a simple portrait drawing including the head, neck and shoulders. Students use geometric shapes to break of the simple portrait. Lastly, students choose a color family like warm, cool, primary, secondary to color in each shape. Students must use value in each shape, this is a colored pencil project outlined with sharpie marker. I think that they turned out great.
