The sixth grade has been learning about Rembrandt and how he used dark and light. I took a digital pic of each student and enlarged it . The students had to outline the different values on the copy and transfer to their oaktag paper. We had a lesson on mixing colors before they began to identify the different areas that the color should be tinted.
Here is a copy of the blown up digital pic the students had to sharpie where the values changed. Then they copied onto oaktag with graphite rubbing on the back. Instructions were to paint the highlights first , then the darkest color. Lastly the inbetween colors. We had color value strips made first to help match up the color.
