5th graders at the Roberts have had a terrific fall!

The 5th graders at the Roberts have worked incredibly hard this fall to create three projects: Layered Leaves, Owls, and Monochromatic Cities. Our focus has been on drawing, lines, shapes, patterns, mixing colors to create new colors, and learning to use variations of the same color. We have used a variety of materials ranging from markers and oil pastels, to watercolor paints, crayons, and black pens. Check it out!


Monochromatic Still Life

Fifth graders at the Roberts have been learning about color and how to create different tints and shades of the same color by adding different amounts of black and white to any color. We began by experimenting with the color green and we all created three tints by adding different amounts of white and then three shades by adding different amounts of black. 5 - Monochromatic Test 001

We then took all we had learned and applied it to our project. We drew a still life of different shaped vases with some overlapping and then painted with a monochromatic palette. This project was very difficult, but the fifth graders did a fabulous job!
