Tints and Shades Results

3rd and 4th graders finished up their cylinder projects. Kids seemed to stick to the ideas that were originally brainstormed (snakes, pencils, crayons, colored pencils, paintbrushes), although one boy decided to try baseball bats (sorry, didn't get a photo of it). A few tried adding erasers to the other end of their pencils and tails for snakes. It was fun to see the results and I love the composition of almost all of the pieces.

An added bonus was hearing 5th graders walking down the hallway past the display, "oohing and aahing" and remembering when they used the same technique to make bamboo drawings last year. Music to an art teacher's ears:)

  1. Looks like the kids did a great job. I especially like the off-center placement of the paper on the larger paper. Nice.
