RE: seventh grade painting project

I am going to expand on this idea: I plan on doing a Warhol type project in
which an animal (or even a face) is drawn in each box and then the boxes are
painted using different color schemes: one with complements, one with tints &
shades, one with analogous colors, etc. Hope this helps!
