Learning Tinting and Shading with Painted Bugs

For this project, we drew bugs together.  We discussed their parts and made up bugs of our own and then drew our favorite onto a 9x12 piece of construction paper.  When we were done with our pencil drawings, we started off with tinting. Tinting is when you add white to a color and we tried to make as many values as possible.  After tinting, we added black and created many values of shading.  The kids had a lot of fun trying to make as many tints and shades of a color as possible.  Once the paint was dry, the children outlined their creep crawlers.
