City at Day, City at Night

This project was a great way to introduce my 4th graders to mixing tints and shades to create value.  We had been working for several weeks on mixing colors to create a color wheel and a monochromatic painting and now we were ready for tints and shades.  First, we drew mirror images of a city and painted one city using tints and the other city using shades.  The best part was adding the gold glitter in the night sky when their cities were completed.  I find that a little glitter can be a great motivator to finish a project!
