Value Scales September 20, 2012

The 5th graders used viewfinders to draw zoomed-in compositions of a bicycle.  This week, we discussed the word ‘monochromatic’, along with other mono- words such as monocle, monorail, and monopoly.  The students concluded that monochromatic means one color.  Using chalk pastels, they colored a value scale of one color, which they will then use as a guide for coloring in the bikes next week.
