Monochromatic Object Painting


To prep this assignment, you will need bins of objects for each table. For management purposes it is best if each table has the same items, so that students do not wander to other tables looking for something. Have students lay an object one at a time on their paper and trace around the outside and any inner holes in the object. Each time they add another object it must OVERLAP a previous object. After the pages is filled, monochromatic paints are mixed and the objects are painted. After drying the painting I have the kids go over the outlines of the objects in a black marker.  (from http://www.princetonol.com/groups/iad/lessons/high/monochrom.htm)
