Tints & Shades

I wanted a fun way to review tints & shades with my 4th graders before moving on to a "like" Chihuly based project.  I had them place a dot in the middle of the paper and draw 8 curved lines coming out from it extending to the edge of their paper.  They then placed a dot in the middle of every other one to let them know where the shade was to be placed(trust me..they need this..and even then..some of them didn't get it right?!?!?! ha ha)  This project can be done with younger ages, but I wanted a fun review that would look cool in the halls!!!

  1. Those remind me of Georgia O'Keeffe flowers. What a fun way to teach tints and shades.
