It’s Cool to be a Square


30536162 30536163

Students in my K/1 classes are always working on art concepts. Today was all about warm and cool colors and patterns.


For this lesson, students used a quarter of a square drawn in the corner of their paper as the starting point.

Students painted their square in cool colors with the background in warm colors. Color mixing was encouraged. They could add additional patterns if they chose to.


Once complete, we put them together to make giant squares.
