Monochromatic Landscapes

This year my 5th and 6th grades students learned about monochromatic painting.  They learned the words hue, tint, and shade and painted their own monochromatic scale.  Then we talked about landscapes and how things further away look lighter because of all the things in the air.  The things closest to us look the darkest.  They then drew their own landscapes of mountains, hills, trees, and cities and painted them using their new found knowledge!
