Symmetrical Monochromatic Paintings 2012

(I cropped these in Picasa, but for some reason it didn't show up here. Sorry)

I LOVE this lesson.
So many kids are successful and I think they really have fun mixing the paint.
This year I attempted to talk about color, line and emotion, but since they took so long to complete, the idea got lost in translation. Original line choices and color were supposed to be based on an emotion.
I'm really proud of my students and hope that this lesson has set the tone for the remainder of the year.


  1. These are so cool! They make me think of Rorschach tests! What a great way to teach value. I'm gonna put this in my "find a way to incorporate" pile.

  2. Well thank you very much!
