November-December 2005


Students were introduced to the color wheel, primary and secondary colors, "warm" and "cool" colors and the emotions that colors can express when used in art. Hands on activities included: working with oil pastels to create a warm/cool landscape and recreating Van Gogh's use of color and line to express emotion and show movement.

Spotlight artist- Vincent Van Gogh (with a focus on his landscape paintings-particularly Starry Nights).
