Tints and Shades

3rd graders learned to create tints and shades.  To make a tint, you have to add white paint to a color to make it lighter.  To make a shade, you have to add black paint to a color to make it darker.
 
 
 
We made beautiful paintings of a night sky.  Students worked hard on this because they had to mix their own tints and shades for the paintings.

Then we used construction paper to add a snowy winter landscape to the bottom of each painting.

Snip snip.

 
Great work!
 
Finished product.
