Art Element: Color
Project: Warm and Cool Colors
I started art friday with talking about warm and cool colors and showing some examples from a book about Monet. The kids seemed to get the difference pretty well. I talked about how color can represent mood or feeling or more literal elements of art.
The kids used oil pastels to create their color panels. I outlined each color ahead of time and they filled them in. This was the first time I used oil pastels with the kids and I absolutely loved it. They are so easy to use and require much less effort to fill and space.
