I could not resist showing you my 4th grade project. We were looking at color schemes, and how the colors used in a landscape gives a feeling to a work of art. We steered clear of Halloween, but instead worked toward creating an eerie scene- I told the kids it was kind of like watching a scary movie- it's not the monster that's so scary, but that moment right before, when you know it's a bout to jump out. My 4th graders are a bit low in their skills, but I was pleased with this one. I gave each student Blue, Purple, Black and White, asking them to mix colors to create a variety of tints and shades.
