teaching tints and shades-middle school


Date: Sat Mar 20 2004 - 20:34:19 PST

I'm looking for opinions on how list members teach tints and shades in
painting at the middle school level. More specifically shades. Do you teach shades
by adding black or by adding the complement. I have tried both and although
some students have a hard time mixing the exact complement, it seems to me the
toned down, darker colors achieved by using complements are nicer. I use sax
true tempera by the way.
