One final bit on color...

I wanted to share one more color extension with you. I created a paper extension (not an original idea of mine, but a good one, nonetheless), which you can see above, that is simply 7 blank color tablets in a row.

The original idea is for children to choose any color they would like and experiment with lightness of touch by using one single colored pencil to make 7 graded shades of the same color. However, as pictured above, this same paper extension can be used to experiment with creating shades or tints of various colors by the addition of black or white.
