Grade 7 Students Are Learning How to Tone

This is my last trimester class so they are also beginning to learn about TONE. We have looked at tonal techniques, how to recognize and count values and how to reflect in art.

I have been very impressed with their work so far. In these photos you can see them applying tone with water colour paints to these gorgeous ice-creams. Nothing like doing art that makes you hungry!

Currently they are making paper sculptures which will be lit with lamps so that the tones are seen clearly. Afterwards they will also create beautiful pastel animals. I can’t wait to see what they produce this trimester. The time is going to go so quickly.
