Monochromatic Portraits in 6th Grade

Sixth grade is learning about monochromatic color mixing. Each student chooses one color to complete their portrait in.

A Value strip must be completed with pencil and  tempera paint of their chosen color. We practice mixing the colors together.

First step is to add the white (lightest color) and darkest color.

I took a digital photo of each student with a hat of their choice. We learned about Rembrandt and how he used shading in his paintings.

Here are some finished works.
