Colorful Castles and Color Mixing

Create your own video slideshow at

In this lesson we explored the art element of color.  We talked about how colors help artists tell their stories.  When the students are thinking and working as artists, they too can use their art to tell stories that are make-believe.   We looked at Paul Klee's Castle and Sun and talked about castle walls, towers and roof tops.  What shapes could each part of the castle be? What colors could they mix from only red, yellow and blue?   They were also to include themselves in the 'story'.
