I think at this point, some would say let them decide
on their own project. But since you asked for lessons
to follow-up, I thought I'd refer you to

One deals with abstract art, the other addresses color
symbolism in simple terms, but points out that it is
very subjective.

I think I also ran across a lesson recently that
involved creating 2 idetical drawings- maybe zerox or
trace one, but they should be identical. Then one
could be painted in warm colors, the other in cool

The expressive component may be more important though.
 Just thought I'd pass the ideas along.
