Start by discussing Valentines Day and the shape of a heart. Then talk about your color wheel discussing the warm colors and how they feel hot like fire and the cool colors being cold like the ocean. Next have students use the oil pastel to divide their background into 4 different areas. Use the board or a sample to show them how many possibilities there are. Next have them paint the cool color in each of the 4 areas. Set aside and work on the heart. Divide the heart into 4 areas and paint the warm colors light to dark wiping your brush in between each color. Glue heart onto background and you are set 🙂
