Color Me Happy: Color, Mood, and Tone
This lesson plan 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.
