  4. We studied Mexican Art and focused on the Aztec Sunstone. Then students drew a sun keeping straight lines on one half (sun and background) and curvy lines on the other half. Then studied warm/cool colors and how to blend colors. Students used warm colors on one half of their sun and then cool colors in background and then vice vera. Student learned that by switching their color groups they created contrast in their art.

  7. Did you start with black paper then have them draw in pencil and outline in black pastels? Or did you start with white paper?
