ET PHONE HOME: Tints & Shades

I think I'm having flashbacks to my childhood....E.T. reaching up and pointing to the night sky!!! ha ha   I decided to have my 4th grade use complementary colors with tints & shades to create these other worldly sky paintings w/ cityscape & robot.    The kids really enjoyed the project...painting is a crowd fav!!! Over all they did well, but I noticed many of my students struggled to apply the paint in smooth brush strokes.  I kept telling them if it sounded scratchy..they did not have enough paint on their brush.  It is a skill we need to continue to develop!
