5th Grade: Owls
The 5th grade students learned about VALUE. VALUE is going from light to dark with any color. If you add white to a color you get lighter which is called a TINT. If you add black to a color you get a darker which is called a SHADE. Artists add value to an object to make in look 3-dimensional on a flat, 2-dimensional surface. The 5th grade students were able to choose a color of their choice for their background and create a value scale to represent the light coming from the moon. Finally they were able to add a silhouette of a tree and owl to complete their composition.
