Art Lessons for Kids - Make a Masterpiece Picasso Mask
Students reviewed the difference between warm and cool colors. They traced their design with sharpie and then had to choose either warm or cool colors to fill in their design. Some students chose to divide their paper in half and do one half warm and one half cool. When it came time for coloring I showed them the difference between "messy spaghetti coloring", and nice neat coloring.
