I like to adapt the objectives I am teaching in other classes to create projects for Adaptive Art. My 4th graders were learning about tints and shades so this is the project we made in Adaptive Art :)
We began this piece by painting the students hands with a light tint of blue. (Students watched as the white paint slowly changed each time we added more color.) Students stamped their hands down on the paper, then we added more blue to the white paint to darken the tint again. We created a few tints then started creating shades to overlap the tints. This project also fell into our "winter season theme."
