RE: seventh grade painting project

You could do a version of the following project:

Ask them to pick three shapes...could be geometric or biomorphic...but, just
shapes. Then they draw out 6 different boxes approx. 3"x5"...they use the
three shapes to come up with different designs...on the first, you can
specify they only use the shapes one time each...second box, two
on and so on...then, they use the following color contrasts: one box using
values, one with simultaneous contrast, one analgous colors, one
complimentary colors, one warm and cool, etc...there are more specifics to
this project, but this is the general idea...

     I'm looking for a snappy 7th grade painting project. ONe where they'll
learn color wheel and values and also one that usually turns out really
nice. I want it to be challenging, but not killer and I want to do it with
tempera. I was thinking of doing tempera resist because I still think its
cool but I can't seem to put together a lesson on it. Any help would be
greatly appreciated.

  thanks in advance
