Elements of Art: Value

This week we focused on Value. I was a bit unsure of how this would go over with my little ones, they surprised me, however, with how well they grasped it. I showed them a value scale from dark to light with black to white and then let them experiment with watercolors. c has better fine motor skill than e, so he could easily make a decent value scale with the paint. Then we tried it with crayons too.

For a project we cut out flower petals and made flowers out of the value scales we made with the watercolor and crayon. A great project that covered a couple mediums as well as cutting and gluing.
