Re: seventh grade painting project

I usually do a kaleidescope painting....they learn about the color wheel....then pick one color and paint their designs with tints, tones shades of that color..... I give them one triangle shape and make a design that one shape. They rub on the back with a dark pencil.....trace it 6 times and they get their circle that is a repeated design like a kalidescope.....they all come out with so many values and tones.... They only are allowed to use one color, black, white and the complement......they are beautiful!....hope this helps....Barb in Michigan P.S. They can make them as simple or complex
