4th Grade students started their MONOCHROMATIC project. The first step was to draw a simple leaf. After the leaf was drawn, students were shown how to mix a TINT of orange using white and orange paint. Students started with white paint, and slowly added orange to it to make the color slightly darker.
An example of a monochromatic scheme cam be seen above.
This image was my inspiration for this assignment. Next week we will create the background portion of the project using cool colors!
Students mixed purple paint in the same way as the orange! We started with WHITE paint and slowly added purple to make the paint darker in a MONOCHROMATIC style! Next class, dots will be added for interest! Click the images below to enlarge.
The last step of this project was to add some details via DOT PAINTING! Check out the progress photos below by clicking to enlarge.
