Art Lessons for the Kids: Warm and Cool Colors

I have been blessed with talented, brilliant children who ooze creativity. I want to encourage that creativity as much as possible, but HOLY COW are art lessons expensive! If we only had one child it would be doable, but with 4 children it just isn't in the cards right now.

Though I am not a teacher, or a professional artist, I have taken it upon myself to be my childrens' art teacher. While I have a few ideas of my own, Pinterest is my greatest ally for lesson plans and printables. If you'd like to follow me on this new creative endeavour I'll be sharing my resources and ideas.
This is what I currently have planned-in no particular order. 

You can also follow my Art Lessons for Kids board on Pinterest. 

The first lesson with my little art students was on Warm and Cool colors. I found a great blog post from Laura Spector on HubPages and used her circle template for the hand tracings. I also used an awesome printable from I Love You Because to teach the kids about warm/cool on the color wheel.

The hands turned out great and it was a fun and easy introduction for the kids.
You'll have to pardon the lack of awesome pictures until I get a new camera.
 Check back for our next lesson on Picasso!


  1. Communication on insecticide spraying company in Qassim.
    Define the quality of the complaint to the employees of the company and within hours one technician will be sent the disclosure.
    The quality of the rodents that are present in the place is free of charge.
    The appropriate device is then selected and hardware installed.
    Adjust a certain degree of vibrations that are consistent with rodent quality.
    Place devices at the entrances of places such as doors and windows.
    Turn on the devices and you will not find any rods in place in place again.
    Charging devices or installing a battery each time and according to the type of use.

    Pest Control
    It is not possible to get rid of insects easily and especially that are present frequently in the place and therefore it is best to communicate with specialists if there were insects in the place and with the control of insects with Qassim will be disposed of different types of insects, including bed bugs, which causes great problems to the infected and can be eliminated through: -شركة مكافحة حشرات بخميس مشيط
