Tints, Shades, and Smocks, Oh My!

This student is sporting a dashing, over-sized, blue smock donated by a generous Maury parent. I bet his mom is thanking you right now. So am I!

Artists use tints and shades to create different values. We are each painting 2 fence posts, one to display tints and the other to display shades. Once finished, we will create a collaborative sculpture from our colorful wooden posts. Hammers and nails–two of my favorite tools next to a power drill.

I wonder what people would say if the Washington Monument was magically transformed into a giant, purple value scale? That would sure spice up the city.
