Warm and Cool Flowers

For this lesson, we first talk about "warm" and "cool" colors and how they can change the mood of a painting. We also talk about Georgia O'Keeffe and the way she painted flowers. Then students are given the opportunity to paint their own warm, or cool flowers.






Thanks Kermit King Elementary students.
