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!
-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,
