  1. Hue and value remake: Take your 5 value grid assignment and remake one composition in color by collaging pieces of paper from our paper swatch collection. Select a color scheme that is monochromatic (based on a single hue, like all red, with light, dark, saturated and unsaturated reds). Remake the piece using colors that are similar in value to your original 5 values (light hue with lots of white in it for light grey, intense, pure hue for black, etc). Bring your new piece to class along with the original 5 value grid assignment.
