1. Explore artworks that make use of dark moody colours.

2. Discussion - Shades are 'colours mixed with black'. They are often used to to create gloomy or sad moods. It is important to have a knowledge of these colours for when you wish to create such a mood. Most kids know to mix white with colours to create tints but black is not a tool they think to use. Shades can also be used in shadows and shading.

3. Draw a cartoon cityscape in yellow chalk. Make some of the lines 'wavey' for a different effect. Be sure to raise the baseline from the bottom of the page.
