  • Learn about warm and cool color families
  • Apply my knowledge of warm and cool colors to my artwork

We will choice either warm or color colors for our cat and use the other color family in the background using watercolors. Some of you will finish this today and some of you will need a little more time to complete your painting. Either way, take your time and pay attention to color placement.

If you finish early you can work on your sketchbook assignment.
