Teaching Painting

I was hoping to put photos of the art work I created while in college. Unfortunately, it is in some box in our storage area (I hope). Until they are found, here is some current work. We home schooled our children. Part of that education was painting. Two are now graphic design majors in college. Click on the paintings below to see a larger image.

The first several assignments that I gave the kids were to paint a subject using only complimentary colors and white. Each project was completed within two hours.

We then advanced to using three colors and white. The subject matter could be anything in the backyard.

I wanted the kids to get more experience with values so we did a project with one color and white.

Now I let the kids use all the colors they want.
