This is a neat lesson to do with your upper elementary students that covers shades and tints, color mixing, and Art Appreciation. Students trace their hand 2 times onto a 12'' square piece of gray bogus paper, once from the bottom, and once from a side. Using a ruler, trace 3 lines from the top to the bottom, and 3 times side to side. Don't forget to slant the lines a little. Now-very important- outline everything with a black sharpie. Begin painting. EVERYTIME YOU HIT A LINE, CHANGE COLORS. You may place the same colors kater/corner. When all the painting is complete, let dry completely, re-outline with sharpies, and make the lines dark and even. They are very colorful, and you may wish to limit the paintings to certain colors of your choice.
