Shade the Paintbrush – Tone / Value Activity


Ask your students to create different tones/values, going from light to dark, across the sections within the paintbrush handle. Either give your students one paintbrush to shade which would make an excellent starter, or give a student the entire worksheets and ask them to work with different mediums.  You could consider:

Coloured pencil – a hot colour
Coloured pencil – a cool colour
Pointillism in pen
Blending two colours together
Watercolour using just one colour
