One of the most important things in a painting is not the color choice but rather the values. If the values are correct the colors don’t really matter. This beautiful painting was done by a high school and demonstrates the use of values to create form rather than accurate color.

Zentangles

This was a great relaxing lesson! After learning about Zentangle art and looking at many different drawings in that style students got creative and designed their own Zentangle art. We also learned how to shade with paint markers and student had the option of staying black and white or get funky with their colors!
