2nd Grade Warm and Cool Color Mountain Landscapes

2nd Graders continued their study of color theory, this time looking at warm and cool colors.
We talked a little bit about how warm colors makes us feel vs. what cool colors might make us feel.  We usually think of warm colors as being daytime and cool colors as being nighttime.  

We drew our mountain scene together.  Students had to think about if they wanted a moon or a sun in their sky.  If they had a daytime sky they used warm colors and a nighttime sky they used cool colors.  They used the opposite colors on the mountains. After students colored in the entire sky and mountains they were able to use a black and white oil pastel to create patterns on top.
