I am always looking for ways to make tints and shades a little more fun. We’ve done monsters, atmospheric perspective, and hearts.
This lesson was inspired by my own tiki collection as well as the art work of Erik Abel.
Students drew their basic shapes in black Staonal marking crayons and filled in the sections with different tints, shades and tones.
Pretty great results for a 60 minute art lesson!
If we had more time, I probably would have them go back and outline the different sections in marker.
