Cool and Warm Hands
I taught the 6th graders the difference between cool and warm color on the color wheel. I assigned them the task of using a tracing of their hands to fill in with warm or cool colors only. I challenged them to use lines only, but allowed them to use shapes as well as part of their designs.

Op art with Bridget Riley: Free handout and Youtube video.
Op art is fun to teach! I find my students love it once they get the hang of it. Fourth Grade began a mini-unit on Op Art with a slideshow on artist Bridget Riley. I asked the students questions about the art: What did the notice? What colors did she use? What did it remind you of? How did she do that? We learned a little about her life too and her place in art history. Next we received some practice pages. Students learned how to wrap lines, create radiating designs, keep lines parallel…
