Key Concept: Colour Scales
Objective: Students will:
a)Learn to use colour scales, chroma scales and intensity scales
b) Learn colour theory - properties-hue, intensity, and value, value scales, colour and warm color, tints and shades.
c) Use this knowledge to create a piece of art based upon the B&W piece by changing black and white theory to color theory.

a) Intro to colour.
b) Creation of a colour scale using Primary colours then secondary colors

Color Scale/MonoChromatic/tints and shades-
Color Scale/Complements
* Create 1 inch square scales numbering 10 squares
Primary color in middle add black to one side, white to the other to reach dark and light of primary color
* Create the same 1 inch squares
Each comp*lement one opposite ends.
Mix each color in small amounts to reach middle maling a neutral gray color
*copy Impressionist landscapes in Black and white then using complements- break down and explain complements

Project -
*Create a monochromatic drawing /painting of geometric shapes
*Create a monochromatic drawing/painting of organic shapes
*Create a small landscape, monochromatic showing depth.
discuss color schemes - warm/cool, dark/ light, symbol and emotional temp. of color Intensity
