It is important to remember all the concepts that have gotten you into Art 3/Painting. Such as, Monochromatic(one color), Tints (adding white), and Shade (adding black), and Tones (adding grey). You will be utilizing all these techniques this week while doing this project.
Week 3 (Art 3/Painting) Valued Dots
Project #3: Valued Dots
Project Directions: Supplies Needed:Poster Board, Painters Tape, Paint, Brushes, Paint Palette 1. We will be using a poster board to create this project. You will chose THREE colors. They do not have to be primary, secondary, or tertiary colors. Hint: Actually the more unique the colors the better. It can be three non formal colors that you already have in a bottle. Be sure that you are happy with these colors. The colors used in the example above are, BLUE, YELLOW, and BROWN. All the other colors are achieved by adding black or white to the color. 2. You will paint your poster board a neutral background color (the above example is a gold background). 3. Once dry, you will tape off your poster board into a geometric pattern. Be sure that the tape is nice and securely attached to the canvas. 4. You will add black to get different shades of your three colors, and you will mix white to get different tints of your three colors. You can arrange those on your poster board in a dot formation, in a color scheme that you like with the colors that are pleasing to you. The color scheme above is Blue and Yellow tints/shades, Blue and Brown tints/shades, Brown and Yellow tints/shades. I would assume the next color scheme would be Blue and Brown tints/shades. You want the colors to blend and contrast at the same time. So, be sure to mix them first so that you can get an idea of what it will look like. 5. Using a rounded brush, just dot the colors into the place that you would like them, it is okay if they are not totally consistent.
