Kids love painting! I love seeing the students enjoy learning about art. The second graders are very impressed by tints and are having a blast mixing them. A tint is a hue (color) mixed with white. Tints often make colors appear brighter. A "famous" tint with its very own name is pink. This week I will teach the second graders about shades. A shade is a hue (color) mixed with black. I am expecting them to be just as impressed with shades.
The first graders started painting using cool colors. They love painting large areas of blues, purples and greens on their big bugs! This week we will start with warm colors: red, orange and yellow.
