The 3rd Grade students reviewed the Warm and Cool Colors. Students also reviewed what TEXTURE is and used texture plates to create texture in the background using only the cool colors. Students then learned what the word organic means and used only curvy/organic lines overlapping their texture. To create CONSTRAST students used yellow and orange watercolor to create their background. Next students added a tree and branches and added shadows to make it look more realistic. Finally students were about to draw a bird native to Wisconsin sitting in their tree. Students colored their birds using tints and shades. We talked about which direction the light is coming from and what part of the bird the light will hit first. This would be the tint and the farthest part of the bird from the light would be were the shading would be.
