Here is a great painting lesson for your high school art students. This lesson reinforces drawing skills related to realism, with an emphasis on proportion and form. Furthermore, it teaches students to paint using old master techniques involving an underpainting and color matching. One of the hardest things for art students is the act of matching value to color. For this project, students first create an underpainting using only black, white, and gray tones. This helps them to see the values. Next, they use a color copy to match colors. They must place their mixed colors directly on the color copy to examine the value and chroma. Most students are surprised to see how far off they are with their values.
