After reading the dot we decided to experiment with making our own "dot" pictures. First we did it on paper with oil pastels. Here is a sampling of our work.
The next day we looked at the colour wheel. We learned about monochramatic colours. These are colours in the same tones. We also learned about complimentaty colours, which are colours opposite each other on the colour wheel, and analogous colours which are colours that are side by side on the colour wheel. We talked about using thick and thin lines to create an image. When we were satisfied with our creations we posted them on our own blogs! Please check our individual blogs to see our masterpieces. We loved doing this! Have you created any art work based on a book or artist?
