    6th Graders created their own unique color wheel, by mixing all of their own colors, with using just the 3 primary colors.

  • 6th graders use a a grid enlargment technique to create a drawing of a celebrity. They also learn how to shade their finished drawings with charcoal and pencil. Can you tell who they are?

  • 6th graders make a "View through a Window." They are told to "think outside the box" and create really original pictures, looking through any sort of "window." They then are instructed to color their pictures using at least 2 different art materials.
