My 5th graders are using tints, tones and shades to create a Monochromatic painting - using one color that changes value (light and dark)
Students select one color (red, orange, yellow, green, blue or purple)
They add white to the one color - to make a tint
They add black to the one color to make a shade.
They add both black and white to make a tone.
*A Spark is a school wide mission to have students recognize their "spark" or their favorite thing to do.
I'm in my 6th year teaching art in Becker, MN. Time has really flown by! Wowza!
