Paper bag owls were fun to design using brown paper bags (upside-down) and tempera paint.

Then, we moved to color stations making color choices with paint. Students are encouraged to use ideas from our color wheel unit- remembering things like having a general color theme, tinting and blending colors to find the effects they desire.
