Before starting a final project, it's important that students explore their chosen medium. For painting, the Monochromatic Cupcake Worksheet is an option for students to explore blending, layering, and creating a monochromatic color scheme. On average, the worksheet should take one to two class periods to complete. I provided a colored version of the worksheet with examples to act as a reference key. This worksheet makes for a great addition to any sketchbook or interactive notebook.
