Color Me Happy: Color, Mood, and Tone

This lesson introduces students to the ways artists use color to set the tone of a painting or to convey a particular mood to the viewer. Students view "The Tragedy" by Pablo Picasso. They fill in an information chart describing the mood or tone of the painting. They discuss the ways certain colors often are used to convey a certain mood or feeling. This is the second of two lessons in this unit.

As an online high school teacher, LP has helped me tremendously with extra resources! I have been able to use additional supplemental materials from here and students are able to gain more knowledge and a different perspective.
