3rd Grade Goes Monochromatic

Fresh off of our tertiary color lesson, third graders reviewed tints and shades.  They recalled that tints are created when we add white to a color, making it lighter.  Shades are a darker version of a color, created when we add black to a color.

After that review, students learned about Cubism.  We focused on how Picasso and Braque broke up shapes and showed more than one point of view in an artwork. 

Students drew cubist portraits and are now adding color- monochromatic of course!  They could choose between oil pastel, tempera paint or colored pencil.
