      About the back page: For this in-depth unit on color, Grade 9 students integrated various color harmonies in a personal and imaginative composition. To do this they first had to thoughtfully organize the work, making preliminary drawings that would take into account the placement of each color while at the same time successfully communicating their message. They further practiced mixing values and hues using acrylic before working on their large scale final painting. The success of these wonderful works is due in large part to careful planning and creative problem solving. But the most important ingredient is the passion and interest they put into making their works the best they can be!
