My 5th grade classes painted these monochromatic skies back in January. I have seen many versions of this lesson on blogs and originally saw this lesson on Artsonia over the summer while planning lessons for this school year. My 5th graders loved, loved, loved this lesson!!! They got completely absorbed in the coloring mixing!
I recently sat down and started playing around with how to use Picasa to edit my photos. Let me just ask you. "Can you say FUN?" This site is so much fun! I was able to do a lot of different things with Picasa! I labeled all my photos with my blog name, framed, cropped and made several versions of photo collages. Yes, it is time consuming and is not something you can do on the spot but, it was well worth the time and effort to do it all!

|Here are the photos by themselves. I was also able to frame each one.|
I had many different frame styles and color choices!
