The 5th grade has been busy for several weeks working on this year’s art banner that will travel around the city. In keeping with our theme, Art in the Round, we have been making individual compositions in acrylic paint on circles that will be included on the banner. Students are studying tints, tones and shades so are working with a limited palette of colors: white, black and red.
white + color = tint
gray + color = tone
black + color = shade
They are experimenting with mixing their own paints as they work in their own styles. It will be exciting to see everyone’s work combined on the banner. Please enjoy the gallery of individual paintings from both Mr. Schwanke and Ms. Golden’s classes.
