In this painting unit 6th grade students learned about drawing a face using proportion as a measuring tool. They also reviewed the color wheel and identified 6 different color schemes. When they started painting, they had to choose their schemes from: cool, warm, complementary, split complementary, monochromatic and analogous colors. They did a lot of mixing with tones to make their painting more interesting. They learned a lot about colors. And most of all that PAINTING IS FUN!
