As part of the CAC for SEA children are required to learn the difference between a tint and a shade and have some experience in creating them. This sounds kinda serious... and it is, but that doesn't mean it can't also be fun!
For this project the Picassos were told they were going to design a store window for an ice cream shop. This ice cream shop sold only one flavour of ice cream which would be the pure colour in the middle and we would create tints of this colour by adding drops of white and shades by adding drops of black. In our painting tints are below the pure hue and shades are above.
They also had to name their ice cream parlour and put the name in the painting like a sign! As predicted there was a lot of fuss over the name chosen... lol. Take a look at their creations!
And my Thursday afternoon Picassos took their turn at mixing tints and shades... see how they did!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
