leaf designs

Mr. Sacco's seventh grade classes based these paintings on a fall leaf drawn
from observation.

Students first learned how to mix colors to create their own color wheel. They
then learned how to lighten colors (tints) and darken colors (shades). Next,
they concentrated on design, looking for shapes around and within their leaf.
Their final step was to demonstrate contrast using a warm/cool color scheme.
