Thinking & Reasoning
This lesson provides students with an opportunity to experiment with color mixing, using paints as the medium. After completing this lesson, students should better understand the concept of creating different values and intensities in color.
You will need the following supplies to complete this lesson:
Please be aware that tints are created by mixing white to a hue. Tones are created by mixing a color with its complement; shades are created by adding black to a hue. Value is the lightness or darkness of a hue and it is changed by adding black or white to a color. Intensity is the brightness or dullness of hue and is changed by mixing a color with its complement (the color directly across on the color wheel).
Students should have a basic knowledge of the color wheel and the relationship of the colors.
After completing this lesson, students should better understand the concept of color mixing to create different values and intensities.
This activity could be adapted to meet the needs of a variety of students depending upon their skill level--having them paint less, making neatness worth fewer points, having them work with a partner, etc...adjust as necessary.
Students' work should be evaluated upon completion (10 pts), correctness (25 pts), and neatness (15 pts). 50 points total.
