Colour Value Quilts

As part of our Colour Unit during which we learned about primary and secondary colours, shades, and tints, we made Colour Quilts when we learned about value.

I found this activity in the book, How to Teach Art to Children.

Using the 8 colours in their crayon box, I asked my little friends to use each colour to fill in 2 boxes - one with light pressure and the other with full intensity.
I encouraged them to colour in random boxes so that there is variation in colour and value.  As usual, some did a really good job and others didn't get the memo!

These 2 turned out pretty well.

You can grab the template that I used {here}.  Enjoy!
