Grades: 2 – 6+

Medium: Tempera Paint

Learn the basics of painting different values with this monochromatic, black/white painting worksheet. Great for tempera, but can also be used for acrylic. Working with younger students? Tempera is great because it’s washable. Acrylic is more permanent, (meaning it won’t chip, you can add a 2nd layer without it smearing the layer underneath, but it can also stain your clothes) so we recommend it for grades 3 and up.
