JH Value & Color Schemes

I printed off a variety of pictures for my students to use as references for this project.  They drew numbers from a cup and then selected a photo in number order.

Students used a grid to draw these photos and left the grid boxes on the paper for this project.

The main goal for this project was to teach my students about value/shades as well as incorporating the use of a monochromatic color scheme through value.  We also used complementary color schemes.

This was a challenging assignment for my 7th and 8th graders, but the results turned out pretty well.  Some of them eliminated quite a few details while others kept them.  Each gives a different feel to the painting.

Here are some examples:

This piece received a medal at our JH league art competition last week! :)
