ELEMENT OF ART:
Another way to make this educational is to incorporate one foundational aspect of art education each month. There are seven basic art principles to cover: line, shape, form, color, value, texture, and space. YouTube is a great resource for teaching videos on these topics. Here is a sample video on the topic of mixing colors. You will also find these principles described in my Artist of the Month Club units available from my TeachersPayTeachers store.
