Value Landscapes

The fifth grade put their paint mixing skills to the test with these value landscapes.  We began by talking about the value of colors (color+white=tint, color+black=shade). They drew a landscape on their paper; dividing it into 8 sections. Choosing blue, green, or purple paint, they used the color straight out of the bottle for their middle layer of the landscape. Then, they slowly added black to their original color. Each layer of the landscape got gradually dark with each shade. The next class period, they slowly added white to their original color. Each layer of the landscape got gradually lighter with each tint.  The final result is an obmre landscape that shows the value scale of their chosen color.
