After discussing "The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse," we took out the interactive color wheel and reviewed warm and cool colors. We had started talking about the warm and cool color groups in December, after making the color wheel turkeys. Students completed color wheel warm/cool color worksheets, and had then done an imaginative drawing using warm colors on one side of their paper, and cool on the other.
Before painting, I did a demonstration with tempera cakes since the first graders had not used them before. They loved using them, and did a wonderful job painting their sheep!
