Perhaps an approach to the white space (with elementary) can be one that
points out the opportunities for students to see negative space...

-Today we are using white paper, so you don't have to use the white
paint/crayon/whatever medium because that color is already there for you!
...so
-Think about what shapes you decide are left the white of the paper, because
it is a great color, and an important design element of your drawing.

-What about using colored paper more often? I did Botanical Drawings with
first graders, using an old, pale purple (it WASN'T purple, it had faded so!
:))
The yellows of the dandelion blossoms looked great with the complimentaries.
Just thoughts,
