Art Ideas for Teens
This is a shades and tints painting lesson. Students will draw layers of ground and mountains , plus one tree and one sun, onto a 12'' sq. piece of bogus paper. Outline with black sharpies. Define the terms ''shades'' and ''tints'', have students pick 2 colors, and start painting.. Begin at the bottom and work their way up---leave the sky for last. When everything is painted, redraw the black lines- this time adding hatching and texture lines. They have to actually mix the shades and tints.
