1. Explain - 'tone' is a colour mixed with grey.

2. Explore some artworks that use tones.

3. Demonstrate making a sketch in yellow chalk of a person without looking at the paper. Be sure to use large sweeping arm movements to fill up the page. NB I use yellow chalk because it's easy to paint over the construction lines.

4. Have the children sketch a friend without looking at their paper. Really encourage them not to look as it is heaps of fun to see the finished portrait :)

5. Alter a few lines to make the sketch as 'unrealistic' as possible.

6. Paint the sketch with tones only ie colours / colors mixed with grey / gray.

7. Once dry outline in black paint with a thin brush.
