This was our second attempt at creating mood with our artwork. We talked more about color, contrast, shade and shape. The kids could again use water color, pastels or charcoal. This time, though, they had to focus on a different mood than last time. We made a large list of moods to get our juices flowing. Then we set to work. Again, it was very quiet and focused. Everyone worked steadily for the entire hour. We were all happy with the results.
