Watch this video to go over classroom expectations:




Students will choose a monochromatic color to make a section for a Swartz Creek Dragon, which is our school mascot.  The sections will be assembled to make a large dragon!

Monochromatic colors are all the colors (tints, tones, and shades) of a single hue. Monochromatic color schemes are derived from a single base hue and extended using its shades, tones and tints. Tints are achieved by adding white and shades and tones are achieved by adding a darker color, gray or black.
