Skills: Feelings, Representation
Let’s get out our crayons and make feelings art.
What feeling should we draw first?
Let’s pick a color (or colors) that you think represent the feeling.
Let’s close our eyes, take a deep breath, and think about how that emotion feels. When you’re ready, open your eyes and start to draw with our crayon.
Let’s talk about the feeling you’re drawing as you draw: how does it make you feel? Where in your body do you feel it? What color does it remind you of? What reminds you of the feeling?
Let’s talk about how your fingers, hands, wrists, and arms move while you’re drawing. How does your hand feel when you’re finished?
When you’re all done, give your picture a title, and try writing a few words describing your work.
- Primary colors: red, blue, yellow — you can mix them to make the other colors!
- Feeling: emotion
- Light: pale in color
- Strong: powerful
