Recently, somebody asked how many different colors students should use when making the Op Art Hearts, found in one of Expressive Monkey's Op Art lesson sets. This made me think of all the different color lessons that could be incorporated into this easy Op Art lesson. So here are a few samples of what I mean.

Monsters are a fun way to put some color theory to use. This is my warm colored monster that I create using watercolors oil pastels and some plastic wrap. The plastic wrap is a fun way to create a texture in your watercolor painting.
Expressive Monkey has made 13 Monster Coloring Pages just to make sure your students have some extra fun! You can use the Monster Coloring Pages as an extra activity for early finishers, or use the pages to teach color theory or as writing inspiration.

We all know that time flies when you are having fun. So you can imagine how fast an art class can fly by! That's fine if you are a kid, but the art teacher has the daunting task of fitting so many things into the space of a short art class, then having the students cleaned up, lined up and ready for the next class to come in and start it all over again. That's why small changes can make a big difference when you are repeating your procedures several times a day. So I'm giving you a sneak peek into the classroom at Brown Elementary to see how Ms. Murdock keeps on schedule in style!

For this drawing, I picked 3 of Expressive Monkey's Sunflower Description Cards to create the design of my sunflower. There are 16 description cards in the set, as you can see, I used number 15, 1 and 4 for this combination. When I was finished, I went over my pencil lines with a Sharpie marker.
