Non-Objective/Monochromatic Oil Pastels: 6th Grade

To begin our focus on the element of Color, 6th grade classes explored the use of a monochromatic color scheme. Ask any 6th grader and they can tell you that Mono = One, Chroma = Color, and Tic = exhibiting the characteristics of something. When you put that all together you get the definition of the word monochromatic - having the characteristics of only one color. 

Students created non-objective (not of anything other than lines and shapes) designs and used their chosen color of oil pastel plus black, white, gray, and/or small amounts of other colors to create a monochromatic color scheme.
